Attitude Is Everything
Interim Director, CSU, Chico Academic Advising Programs
Kim DuFour has worn many hats in her 30 years at CSU, Chico – from serving as the first-ever Director of CAVE (Community Action Volunteers in Education) starting in 1981 to her current position in Academic Advising. As she looks back over that time, she keeps going back to the importance of “attitude,” which she defines as how people respond to challenges. Her story includes a lot of humor and perseverance, and a lot of examples of how to help students grow beyond their comfort zones and develop their skills. One of her campus positions was in Student Activities, helping organize special events. From this time period, she tells an entertaining story about the night Billy Idol played a concert in Acker Gym!
