The goal of the #TRUE Blue summer tour is to connect with the community in order to get fans excited about the 2016 season. Each stop will allow fans the opportunity to get autographs from and to mingle with Blue Raider coaches and players and members of the spirit squads. Fans will also be able to pick up season ticket information, posters, schedule cards and various MT Athletics promotional items.

For the complete list, go here.

• Paula Mansfield, new director of strategic partnerships in the MTSU Office of University Advancement, discussed her new role at MTSU and plans going forward.

After three decades of experience and “relationship building” in the financial services industry, Mansfield was hired earlier this year to provide a single point of contact between MTSU and corporate partners as well as other external and internal constituencies to build stronger relationships that lead to ongoing collaborations that impact inside and outside the classroom.

• Dr. Colby Jubenville, special assistant to the dean for Student Success and Strategic Partnerships in the MTSU College of Behavioral and Health Sciences, discussed his role at MTSU as well as his background and expertise in coaching people to “go their own way” to monetize their knowledge and skills.

In 2016, Jubenville secured $1 million in private monies and launched The Center for Student Success and Coaching, a high profile student success initiative focused on coaching students, enhancing problem solving capabilities, professional preparation, personal branding and emotional intelligence. He serves as the director of the center, which will be housed in the Miller Education Center on Bell Street.
