Upon her third year of teaching, she decided to pursue her passion of working in higher education. In May of 2017, Christian graduated from the University of Connecticut with a master’s degree in Higher Education & Student Affairs. During her time at UConn, Christian worked as the Peer Education Coordinator for the Office of First Year Programs and Learning Communities- coordinating and managing a peer mentorship program that served about 3,000 freshmen and transfer students. This position led her to be able to serve on the founding leadership team of the ScHOLA2RS House Living and Learning Community, which was designed to support the scholastic efforts of male students who identify as African American through academic and social/emotional support, access to research opportunities, and professional development. The mission and intent of this learning community is to increase the retention and persistence of African/American, male students using educational and social experiences to enhance their academic success at UConn and beyond in graduate and professional school placement.
While at UConn, Christian was also able to conduct research and assessment and give presentations on the impact and success of peer-mentorship programs for LGBTQ+ students, providing intentional support and more inclusive spaces for Muslim students, holistic approaches to supporting Black, male student-athletes, exploring the role of religion and spirituality within student development and student affairs.

In the summer of 2016, Christian worked at Cornell University as the Senior Hall Director for their Summer College program.
During her final semester at UConn, Christian participated in a study abroad trip and traveled to Salvador, Brazil to study race relations, the Afro-Brazilian culture, and to understand the role of access and equity within Brazil’s higher education system. Christian is on a purposeful and authentic journey to self-authorship.
