Nicole Smith
Lecturer, MIS

“I was most looking forward to the opportunity to work around others with a passion for preparing students for life outside of the classroom. My favorite part about joining the COB team is seeing the progression as a student learns on a weekly basis (i.e., the Aha moment) and I can see the shift from 'not knowing' to 'knowing' how to apply knowledge learned.”

Christina Wright
Lecturer, Sports Administration
Multicultural Faculty-in-Residence

“Quite simply, it’s the students. I love this time in their lives where they are trying to figure things out. It’s exciting, it’s scary, and everything in between. I love that I can share my industry experience in the classroom and guide them to their own path to success. My favorite part about joining the COB team is the privilege to return to my alma mater and teach alongside the faculty who impacted my career in the sports industry. There’s something special about our Bobcat family and it’s great to be back!”
