Springboard Innovation Fellow

Khiya Connolly-Sisk (she/her) from Burke Virginia, studied Classical Civilizations, Political Science, and World Literature at Hofstra University. Throughout her time at school, Khiya was an Orientation Leader for incoming freshmen, a Peer Educator in the Office of Intercultural Engagement and Inclusion, an active member of Hofstra Hillel, and the President of the Student Government Association during her senior year. Her University’s Hillel, in conjunction with her other student involvement, aided Khiya in discovering her passion: helping students find a home within their college community. In the free time she wishes she had more of, you can find Khiya devouring books of every shape and size, writing poetry, and finding a way to drag her friends anywhere and everywhere to hike in the mountains. Khiya feels honored and inspired to be working with such a stellar team as she transitions into the role of Springboard Fellow at Ithaca College’s Hillel, and she cannot wait to meet the students this fall!
