Haley Richards

Pronouns: She/Her/Hers

Advising Since: 2005
Schedule an Appointment (currently assigned students)

Recognizing that we all only consider possibilities that we know exist, Haley loves advising students who are exploring possibilities and trying to figure out their path.  Listening to students' stories, honoring students' transition to the university, and guiding students through the exploration and reflection of their individual strengths, interests, and values allows Haley to honor each student's unique life story and suggest various paths forward .  She also enjoys identifying and working to dismantle barriers to student success.   Haley was awarded a Jack E Cermak Advising Award in 2010, reflecting her dedication to the profession and commitment to students and their success.

Outside of work, Haley enjoys being active outdoors, reading books, getting crafty and playing with her two (adorable) children.

    • B.A. in Communications & Public Relations, minor in Leadership Studies – Fort Hays State University
    • M.S. in Student Affairs in Higher Education – Colorado State University

After trying out a few odd-jobs in the business and non-profit sectors, Haley decided to pursue her passions for learning, community, and empowering people to recognize and realize their strengths. She came to CSU for graduate school and earned a Master of Science in Student Affairs in Higher Education, and has been here since!
