Alayna Hayes

Senior Director of Life Design: Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Alayna is a closet creative, karaoke enthusiast, and a third-year doctoral student regularly seeking the balance between schoolwork and a social life. Alayna understands firsthand the unique turns that life and careers can take and understands how Life Design can support the constantly evolving journey. She is passionate about supporting first-generation, limited income, and URM students and has centered her research on better understanding how to support them as they pursue their life’s purpose. If Alayna could tell her college-self anything, she would encourage her to follow her passions even if the road is unknown and nontraditional.
