Jacqueline Bessette, Director of Creative Learning Solutions, was recently invited to return to her alma mater, Bryant University, to share her successes in education, career, and leadership.

Jacqueline is the former President of the Communication Society, and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Studies.
In a conversational setting, Jacqueline offered insight, lessons learned, and advice for navigating the workforce, finding a meaningful and rewarding career path, and leading with authenticity. Jacqueline noted, “It was an incredible opportunity to return to Bryant and share my experiences with current students. It was amazing to see such a great turnout, and that students are engaged, socially-minded, and truly interested in pursuing their passions. My background in communication has been the common thread in my educational and professional endeavors, and that was a direct result of my time spent at Bryant.”
