  • Kimberlie Goldsberry
    Vice President for Student Affairs and Dean of Students - Carthage College

    “I am reminded of a quote by Robert Ingersoll, “We rise by lifting others.” Because Kimberlie has mentored, challenged, and lifted others, amazing work has been done on behalf of NASPA and many colleagues, especially those in IV-E have been greatly impacted. There are many of us who are even more privileged to say that because of the way Kimberlie “lifted” us, our lives have changed.” - Lisa Brown Cornelius, Director of Residence Life, John Carroll University
