Marilee Bresciani Ludvik, Ph.D. serves as Professor of Postsecondary Educational Leadership at San Diego State University.  Her work seeks to integrate interdisciplinary ways of knowing in order to re-design opportunities to optimize student learning and development and the assessment of those re-designed opportunities. Using a theoretical framework of attention and emotion regulation, she seeks to empower students into conscious and compassionate choice-making. With over 29 years of higher education administrative and faculty experience, Marilee assists administrators and faculty in seeing how mindfulness and Theory U processes can inform their design of transformational learning opportunities and their evaluation.  Marilee’s mantra is, “I teach what I am learning.”
