Jess Bennett, M.Ed

Education Director

I believe that the college years are such an important and transformational stage of our lives. It is a privilege to work alongside college students as they navigate their lives! have worked in higher education since 2007, primarily as a campus recreation professional. This is where I developed a passion for working with young adults.


I have my bachelor's degree in Outdoor Recreation Education from the University of Minnesota and my master's degree in Educational Leadership from Idaho State University. Experiential education and group dynamics are my areas of expertise.

Favorite Books: 

Dare to Lead and Rising Strong by Brene Brown; I also love any book that gives me a new perspective of

how others live in this world!

Hobbies: 

Anything outdoors, adventuring with my family, travel, and gardening
