Alan Lane has been with Willamette for two years, starting in Residence Life & Housing before transitioning to his current role with the American Studies program. Prior to joining the Willamette Community, Alan worked at the University of Utah, Dartmouth College, and the University at Buffalo. Alan got into the field of student affairs after working as a professional accountant for a year, inspired by his time as a Resident Advisor and wanting to continue to have a positive impact on all students. His goal is to ensure his students are able to have as positive an experience as possible during their time at Willamette!

When not at work, Alan enjoys going on hikes, playing video games, and creating activities (He's made a couple board games, a card game, and always loves a good icebreaker). He has a start-up company that he spends most of my free time working on, in video game development with his sister. They video games based on the novels that he's written (6 and counting!) He's also been learning mentalism and stage magic.
