NAILAH BROCK: I'm Dr. Nailah Brock, program director for the bachelor's of science program in political science and public administration. In my work in the district government, I was chief of staff for the property management office, so I was asked to go in and to really help to reshape that agency. And we were successful. We turned the agency around, and now it's one of the most widely respected agencies in the district.
With that experience, coupled with my education, receiving a doctorate in political science, I just feel like within the classroom, I can just bring those real world experiences and the theory-- the theories of public administration, the theories of political science. Bringing those together, I think, just makes for a great learning experience for the student.
I spent two years as a contributing faculty with Walden. And I began to love the online learning environment. I absolutely love it. And also I just became passionate about Walden's mission of social change. I find no place with more focus on their mission than Walden.
