Hello everyone! My name is Eric Einspahr, and I am an Academic Adviser in the College of Education and Human Sciences. I am responsible for advising students in the areas of World Language Education; Elementary and Special Education Dual Endorsements; Nutrition, Exercise, and Health Science; and Family Sciences. My role at the university focuses on the academic planning and registration, student retention and graduation, and student developement.
One of the many roles I have in my position is to show students the value of international education and a global mindset. However, this can be difficult to do if one has not travelled abroad themselves. This will be my first major international trip, and I am excited to experience first hand the power of going global. The opportunity to do so and study such an important topic as human trafficking was an opportunity I could not pass up! I firmly believe in the power of a global thinking; and that being a global mindset is an important trait in today’s society.
I am originally from the small town of Hildreth, Nebraska (Population 300). I earned both my undergraduate and graduate degrees from the University of Nebraska – Lincoln; graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in English with a concentration in Creative Writing and a minor in History in May of 2007; and a Masters of Education in Higher Education Administration with an Emphasis in Student Affairs in August of 2013.
I am married with a young three year old daughter; and I am an avid fly fisherman… as anyone who has visited my office can tell!
