Javier Medina, PhD BA (candidate)

The academic rigor and writing required by NCU helped U.S. Navy officer Javier Medina advance his written communication skills to the point that his supervisor now counts on him to review all contracts, administrative messages and instructions generated within the department. Medina thanks Dr. Kelly Grattan, an NCU professor and mentor, who has gone above and beyond to encourage him to develop his academic writing. “Her focus was not in providing a grade, but rather ensuring that I had received the feedback necessary to meet the course requirement, and to take that knowledge through my academic journey.”
