Since 2013, Courtney Chan has been actively engaged with the Kravis Leadership Institute as a research assistant, conference presenter, and Sophomore Leadership Experience (SLE) facilitator. Having been a member of the KLI family since her first year at CMC, she is excited to continue her involvement with the Institute as a Kravis Fellow.

Courtney is currently continuing her research pursuits with Dr. Sherylle Tan, primarily through KLI’s Undergraduate Leadership Education (ULE) study. She is in the progress of co-authoring a publication that explores the role sense of belonging plays in the relationship between leadership experiences and leadership self-efficacy.

Courtney graduated from CMC in 2017 with a BA in Psychology. Her thesis is titled “Healing from Racism with Compassion Meditation: Effects of Coping on Mental Health.” She aims to pursue a graduate degree in Clinical Psychology, and improve mental health services for underserved populations in the future.

In her free time, Courtney likes to read, write, and travel.
