President Richard Helldobler speaks with alumna Chanti A Carter Rene for his video interview series, WP Reflections, in which he speaks with alumni and friends about their unique experiences at William Paterson experience and how the University influenced them, personally and professionally.
“ My experiences (at WP) led me to appreciate how important personal connections between caregivers, patients, and their families are. It’s important to stay grounded and do our best to ensure as many personal and compassionate connections as possible. It’s an essential part of the healing process. ”

“ Through EOF, I was able to connect with students of similar backgrounds and experiences, while also receiving guidance from compassionate advisors, who were vested in my success…I often use the phrase, ‘Leadership is not about being in charge. It’s about taking care of people in your charge.’ My life experience reminds me that sometimes people just need a bit of help to become the best versions of themselves. ”

“ As a first-generation college student, I needed guidance, so I networked with fellow business students, professors, and alumni. That gave me a competitive advantage in the workforce; I was better prepared to navigate and build my path to professional success. ”
