Joshua Lee, M.Ed, Resident Director
The 2013-2014 Academic Year is my third year at Creighton as the Resident Director for Gallagher Hall. This is not, however, my first role working with college students; I have had the pleasure of working within Residential Life and Student Activities for the last five years. Additionally, I worked as a Resident Advisor and Assistant Resident Director for three years as an undergraduate student.
As an undergraduate I attended Saint Cloud State University and graduated with a Bachelors in Earth Sciences and Geology. I intended on using my degree to teach in a K-12 setting, however, after getting involved on campus I found my passion in Higher Education. I then attended Grand Valley State University where I earned my Masters of Education in Higher Education: College Student Affairs Leadership. My journey to Creighton University has been a fantastic experience and my time here has been life-changing. Creighton students are such a pleasure to work with and I look forward to my future years here.
Many residents and staff proclaim that Gallagher is the "best kept secret" on campus and I definitely agree! The students that end up living here understand the truly unique and tight community bond that is formed here. If you are looking for a place to call your second home, you can find it in Gallagher. As the Resident Director I oversee the daily operations of the hall as well as the hall staff (4 Resident Advisors (one per floor), 1 Assistant Resident Director, and 18 Desk Receptionists). Interacting with students is what energizes me every day and making their first year at Creighton a success is my primary goal! I am here for anything you may need, so please don't hesitate to contact me or stop by my office. Thanks and best wishes in the upcoming year!
