Leadership Facilitator, Instructor

PhD Candidate

 

What Novien believes is his "divine order" has led him to sunny Southern California where he is a Leadership Studies doctoral candidate at the School of Leadership and Education Science at the University of San Diego (USD). Novien is well known for his diverse passions of socially-just and conscious leadership development, pro-social behaviors, and creative/artistic expression, all of which he is able to fulfill through his various roles— a mentor with Big Brothers Big Sisters and the San Diego Foster Youth Mentoring Program, adjunct instructor at USD, president of the San Diego chapter of the Gates Millennium Scholars Alumni Association, and professional artist and performer. Novien is driven to, “help the greater collective reach its highest potential […]” and is ecstatic that he has the opportunity to help facilitate such impact through USD’s Conscious Leadership Academy.
