Meet our student champions:

Danielle "Dee" Dotson

Dee Dotson

"Leadership is service, not position."

This is the refrain that student Danielle "Dee" Dotson lives by daily. She began her academic career at Indiana University Northwest as an adult learner in the fall of 2012 with a mission to earn a degree in Business Administration. After two years of searching for the area of concentration that best fit her love for writing and organizing events, she found herself enrolling in communications classes and stumbled upon her love for public relations. Dee will conclude her academic career at IU Northwest this December, anticipating degrees in both Business Administration as well as Communications. While at IU Northwest, Dee has established herself as a student leader through her volunteer experiences with several student groups and organizations including the Student Government Association, Student Activities Board and Public Relations Association of America. Dee was also a founding member of the first-ever student-run on-campus food pantry. She is also a dedicated wife and mother to five wonderful children.
