Young focuses on student engagement, Cooperative Education coursework and supervision of the on-campus student employment program. She meets one-on-one with students who need assistance with Co-Op planning and will meet frequently with on-campus site supervisors and faculty to build relationships and support the professional growth of Lakeland students.
