Director

Ms. Desiree R. Nownes

 

Orginally from Colorado, Ms. Nownes graduated from Regis University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Criminal Justice and Sociology.  Ms. Nownes received her Master's of Science in Counseling in May 2008 at Creighton.  Ms. Nownes believes that fostering students' development begins in understanding where they are coming from and beginning that important dialogue.  The conversations with students are so crucial to not only listen, but hear what they are trying to convey. Understanding their point of view helps us further their learning and broadens ours.  The conduct process is built on the foundation that the process should be educational and helpful to the student's development.

Assistant Director

Mr. Marshall Kole

Marshall Kole began working with the Center for Student Integrity at the beginning of 2013. Originally from Iowa, Mr. Kole attended Iowa State University where he earned an undergraduate degree in History and Secondary Education. Following the completion of his undergraduate studies, Mr. Kole attended Western Illinois University. After earning a Master's Degree in College Student Personnel there, Mr. Kole moved out of the Midwest and spent nearly five years working as a Residence Hall Director at the University of New Hampshire. It was there that Mr. Kole began to develop a real interest in working with students involved in the conduct process. Mr. Kole sees the conduct process as one which presents students with a very real opportunity for growth and learning. His goal for the students with whom he works is not to levy unfair punishment or sanctions, but to provide them with a space in which they can begin to reflect on their own choices in a personal and meaningful way. Mr. Kole believes that dissonance and discomfort are sometimes the best catalysts for learning, and he aims to support students as they work through the sometimes uncomfortable process of making choices that better reflect the personal and communal values articulated by the Jesuit values central to the mission of Creighton University.
