Next up in our series of Schusterman Library Ambassador profiles is Taylor Potter. Taylor is the Director of the Center for the Creation of Economic Wealth at OU-Tulsa and is currently working on her Master's in Public Administration. Here's a bit more about Taylor:
1. What is your dream job?
I want to run a business that significantly contributes to the local economy, employing people with high wages and adding to our tax base. While I'm not there yet, I'm exposed to the challenge of business creation in my current role at OU CCEW.
2. What is your favorite book?
Right now, my fiction favorite is All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr. I'm also reading Presence by Amy Cuddy and really enjoying the practical application of bringing your best self to every activity.
3. If you were Director of the Schusterman Library for a day, what would you do?
I would have a whole lot of learning to do! I am so amazed by all of the roles that a 21st century library plays in higher education. It's the brain behind so much that we do as scholars, researchers and practitioners. I would look to the expertise of our Schusterman staff, what could we accomplish that's transformational in 24 hours??
4. How do you contribute to the OU-Tulsa community?
OU-Tulsa is a family. We're a small, tight knit campus that invests in our people and cares about our community. I try to do just that, as a student I strive to build relationships with my MPA classmates and as Director for OU-Tulsa CCEW, I expose our interns and campus to business strategy, innovation and problem solving. These are two small pieces of campus activity, but I hope that my small contributions help build our community and help us strive for excellence in interdisciplinary learning and community engagement.
