Dr. Brian Bourke is a faculty member in the postsecondary education master’s program at Murray State University, where he focuses on student affairs professional preparation. Brian discovered student affairs through his involvement in student government and campus activities as an undergraduate at the University of South Carolina Upstate. That involvement led to graduate school at the University of South Carolina, followed by several years working in residence life, along with doctoral study at The University of Alabama. Since becoming a faculty member in 2007, Brian has helped dozens of emerging professionals find their paths into student affairs. In addition to his work with graduate students, Brian engages in a number of scholarly and professional service activities. When he isn’t preparing future student affairs leaders and thinking deeply about the field, Brian enjoys time with his wife and 6-year old daughter, and time in his woodworking shop.
