PictureGive a big Jaguar hello to communications senior, Jorlanditha "Tiffany" Austin! As a full-time student, a military spouse, the president of the Black Student Union and a volunteer for Icing Smiles, Inc., it seemed her plate was full. Yet, this summer, Austin found time to continue her personal growth by becoming a fellow in the Military Family Research Institute at Purdue University's Focus Forward Fellowship. This program is designed to build skills, leadership and a sense of community among women student veterans and military-connected women students.

Fellows were selected through a competitive process and received scholarships for the program. As part of her fellowship, Austin participated in the four-day residency in Indianapolis, Indiana in July. She will continue to participate in additional web-based activities throughout the 2017-2018 academic year.
