Francesca believes that leadership is about working with others to create positive change and is something that grows out of experience, practice and reflection. She oversees the programming and strategic direction of the Husky Leadership Initiative (HLI) by guiding and supporting the HLI committee and its working groups and by building partnerships across campus and in the community. Fran’s prior work in higher education service-learning and student affairs and in community-based youth leadership programs have fueled her passion for facilitating college students’ learning and development in their journeys to become effective, caring and socially just citizens in their communities. She holds a Doctor of Education from the UW College of Education, a Master of Arts from the UW School of Marine Affairs, and a Bachelor of Science from Brown University.
