Biography

Meg Young, DBA, is an Instructor of Management at Stetson University. She has taught Professional Communications, Fundamentals of Organizations and Markets, Fundamentals of Marketing and Technology, and Teaching Apprenticeship courses at Stetson since 2017. Meg has also taught English and Language Arts classes for Volusia County Schools. Meg has a wealth of experience in educational leadership, curriculum planning, communications, business, and writing enhanced instruction.

Professor Young's communications, teaching and training journey began over 15 years ago as a student affairs professional at Middle Tennessee State and The University of Missouri. Along with a committee, she was in charge of the training process for 300+ student workers, including a two-week, 80-hour training program and additional weekly training seminars throughout the academic year. This residential academic experience and curriculum creation sparked her passion for curriculum and instruction, which she has built on throughout her teaching career.

Meg helps students master traditional learning goals for the course; however, her ultimate goal is to leave students more curious and knowledgeable than when we first started their educational journey. Becoming a global citizen, enhancing intellectual development, and personal growth and wellness are critical to this journey. She wants them to understand that there is not just one way to see things, and it is ok to question the answers.

She engages in honest discussion and reflection about what it means to be a global citizen through verbal, non-verbal, and written communication. She integrates internationalization, diversity, equity, and multiculturalism into coursework and curriculum. She raises awareness of the importance of intentionality and mindfulness in learning environments and always makes sure that I create an inclusive environment where ALL students feel safe, heard, loved, and celebrated. 

Mental health, accessibility, differentiation and equity are always a huge part of the learning process; she meets students where they are and helps them meet their full potential through love, support, encouragement, feedback, crucial conversations, and accountability.

She is always striving to become more purposeful in designing courses and engaging students. She takes full responsibility for creating an inclusive learning environment in the classrooms, both virtually and face-to-face.
