Dr. Jill Arensdorf learned about leadership at a young age while growing up in rural western Kansas where she participated in 4-H and the National FFA Organization. Today, Dr. Arensdorf is living out her dream career of focusing on leadership and developing people as a professor of leadership studies at Fort Hays State University (FHSU), where she currently serves as provost and vice president for academic affairs. Her research interests include the effects of service-learning on the development of leadership skills and the transfer of leadership skills to the workplace. Dr. Arensdorf’s philosophy has been shaped not only by leadership theories and concepts but also by her own learning experiences as well. The development of collaborative professional relationships with colleagues is at the core of her leadership philosophy.
