Erlis Murph

Student Services Advisor II

I am the definition of a career, Student Services/Student Affairs professional. My passion is helping students excel academically and in life. My foundations and tools for success are: communication, humor, kindness, accountability, teamwork, positive affirmations, academic advising, counseling and mentoring. I am a holistic advising professional focused on developing future leaders and helping them to compete and change the world. My career has spanned the course of 34 years, which includes, 2-year and 4-year colleges, public and private, Big Ten and Pac-10 universities. I don't know the number of students that I have graduated, but it's a lot. I have also been fortunate to work with some of the most talented student services/student affairs professionals and I've learned so much from them and my mentors at the University of Illinois. My goal today, is the same goal I had in 1989 when I started my professional journey; "Change the world one student at a time."
