Student Coach and Counseling

Kristan Kanorr

Hi! My name is Kristan Kanorr and I am the Student Coach and Counselor in University College. I focus on primarily assisting and advising first-year students. I grew up in Connersville, Indiana until I went to college at Ball State University in 2004. In 2008, I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Sport Administration with a minor in Marketing. I decided to stay at Ball State and attend graduate school where I received my Master of Arts in Student Affairs Administration in Higher Education with a minor in Executive Development for Public Service in 2010.

When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, playing with my dog, Elly, attending church, playing sports (Tennis is my favorite!!), being outdoors, shopping, and simply having a good time. I love the Indianapolis Colts, Peyton Manning, Cincinnati Reds, and IU Basketball.

I love my job here at IU East. I am so thankful to work at a place I actually don’t dread getting up for in the morning. The atmosphere, my co-workers, and most importantly my students are the reasons I have a smile on my face every day. I enjoy getting to know each one of my students and I want all of you to be successful and accomplish the goals you have set for yourself in hopes of a wonderful future. My door is always open, and I want to help you in any way I can. I encourage you to stop by! Please feel free to call, email, or walk-in.

Have a great day!




Hello! My name is Michael Scott and I am a Student Coach-Counselor and a Career Advisor. My job consists of meeting with freshmen students and helping them to become successful personally and professionally during their collegiate experience. I received a Bachelor’s degree in Family Science at Anderson University in 2006. Also, I received a Master’s degree in Student Development Counseling and Administration from Indiana Wesleyan University in 2014.


I was very much involved during my undergrad by being a Resident Assistant in an all-male residence hall and being a member of C.A.B. (Campus Activities Board). It was through those positions that inspired my desire to be involved in a student’s life and guide them through their college journey. Furthermore, I had the privilege to become a Resident Director for 4 years at Anderson University. I believe my passion resides in student affairs by developing students in discovering their own identity and purpose in life.


When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my wife, my son (Judah) and daughter (Kylie), and friends. I enjoy camping, hiking, attending church, anything Marvel/DC movie and comic book related, playing board games, exercising, volleyball, ultimate Frisbee, and FROLF.


When I was in college, I had a mentor invest in me that ultimately inspired me to pursue a career in higher education. I want to do the same for you and help create a positive story for your life to achieving your goals. Please stop by my office through appointment or a walk-in! I would love to meet you!
