Nayasia Coleman is a higher education professional passionate about art, diversity, and inclusion. A military brat, she was born in NYC but spent most of her childhood in Columbus, GA. Education was her ticket out of South Georgia and onto the destiny she dreamed up for herself. Nayasia has been a part of the Kennesaw State University community since 2008 when she began her undergraduate career at the institution. Before receiving her BS in Integrative Studies with concentrations in Writing and Gender & Women Studies, she served as the Vice-President of the Sigma Alpha chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. and the National Pan-Hellenic Council. Her love for higher education began when she was hired as a student assistant in the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life and as a teacher’s assistant for the Fast Start Academy reading comprehension bridge program. She was also a member of the Greek Programming board and successfully helped to plan and execute Greek Week and the First Annual OFSL Awards Banquet. In her senior year, she was inducted into Order of Omega Greek Honor Society for being a part of the top 10% of Greeks academically. Nayasia currently serves as an Program Coordinator and Resource Center manager in LGBTQ Student Programs but her goal is to go much farther in Higher Education. She finds daily fulfillment from working with students and has presented at the Summit on Civil and Human Rights and The Women’s Freedom Conference. Nayasia is constantly looking for opportunities to contribute creatively across the campus community. She looks forward to pursuing a Master’s degree in the future.
