Lenoir-Rhyne University announces the appointment of Cameron Robinson as new director of student involvement.
A Lenoir-Rhyne alumna, Robinson began her role July 13 and is charged with overseeing the Division of Student Life, developing programs that connection LR students with each other and with the community.
"I was excited when I saw this position," she said. "This is an awesome opportunity to work in student life and impact students directly on a daily basis."
Robinson is a three-time graduate of LR earning a bachelor of science in community health in 2015 before earning a master of business administration in 2017 and a master's in leadership in 2019.
"She is Lenoir-Rhyne through and through," said Jonathan Rink, director of residence life. "She is incredibly proud to be an alumna of Lenoir-Rhyne, and she gives every bit of herself to everything she does. The students are going to enjoy her, and I look forward to seeing everything she is able to accomplish."
As director of student involvement, Robinson will organize activities surrounding welcome week, homecoming, family week and more, as well as overseeing student organizations.
As a student at LR, Robinson was a resident advisor as an undergraduate and moved into a residence director position as a graduate student. Since leaving the university, Robinson has worked with a nonprofit, Inspired Learning, where she supervises tutoring programs, has developed after-school programs and mentored at-risk students at Hickory High School."I hope to provide students with opportunities to grow and to provide them with tools they can take and apply to what they have planned for their future," Robinson said. "I plan to assist clubs and organizations with leadership training, provide all students with campus activities and events that they can reference after LR, but still be beneficial for now. I ultimately hope that students can look back and say that being a bear was one of the best times in their life."
