Bio: My name is Cory Sprinkel and I am originally from Dodgeville, Wisconsin. I graduated from the University of Wisconsin with a major in English and certificates in LGBT Studies and Educational Policy. I was involved with many organizations and departments at UW. I was co-president of Ten Percent Society, an LGBTQ+ and ally social organization at UW. I also worked with Residence Life as a House Fellow and with our LGBT Campus Center as a Program and Leadership Coordinator. I am involved in the NASPA undergraduate Fellows Program (NUFP) and have served as the NUFP intern at the University of Michigan, working with sustainability initiatives. My involvement across campus has helped to reveal my passion for the field of student affairs and I am eager to continuing learning at UConn!
In my free time I enjoy cooking, kayaking, hiking, listening to music, binging Netflix shows, and exploring new places with friends. I’m also passionate about sustainability and social justice, especially how they work together. I’m incredibly excited to explore the East Coast and all that Connecticut has to offer!
