Alison Regalado is the Associate Director, Undergraduate Enrollment and Partnerships at National Louis University.

“I have felt like I don’t have or deserve a place at the table – keeping quiet or going along with an idea because I didn’t think I was in a position to say anything or I didn’t have the presence to have my thoughts valued. I want to be a Surge Fellow so that I can develop my voice and executive presence so that when I speak for students, my voice doesn’t shake. I want to be part of the Surge Fellowship so that I gain the skills to meaningfully show up for students every day on every project and be part of a community that supports and guides me to build an education system that will change the lives for young people.”
