Todd Maxey ’91: A lesson in leadership

A 2018 inductee into Lynn University’s Student Leadership Hall of Fame, Todd Maxey '91, is a quintessential campus leader and firm believer in the importance of student involvement.

“Being involved was the only way for me to push my own potential, from a kid barely finishing high school to a young man graduating college,” he said. “Being active in the Lynn community gave me the opportunity to meet new people that would ultimately provide me with the tools to guide my own path.”

His leadership experience at Lynn is wide-reaching. Maxey served in nearly every capacity within the Residence Life department during his years as a student and thereafter. As Lynn’s first-ever Hall Director, Maxey was instrumental in implementing rules that created a lasting campus-wide infrastructure.

Here is what he had to say about his Hall of Fame nomination, time at Lynn and advice to current students.

Why do you believe you were nominated?

I was part of creating the liaison position, between students and administration, that helped implement policy changes students created.

What does it mean to you?

It means the administration listened. I helped the wheels of change begin turning, and they haven’t stopped. It’s nice to be recognized. 20-30 years after my departure—to have my name forever enshrined at Lynn is an honor.

What activities were you involved in during your studies on campus?

I served as both a student and a professional. My activities included Knights of the Roundtable, resident assistant, hall director and director of Residence Life.

How do you stay involved with Lynn?

I support fundraising efforts, attend alumni events, visit campus and stay in touch with staff members.

Any advice to current students?

I have a few: Be first. Volunteer to help, you never know who you may meet.

Get involved—it may help guide your future. Push yourself, both physically and mentally.

Ask questions, and TAKE NOTES!

Be careful with social media—pictures, videos and texts can follow you forever.
