Aaron Miltenberger

Director of Student Life and Leadership

Aaron Miltenberger has no idea how he got into Student Life as a career, but he is pretty sure he likes it. After fifteen years of working with marginal populations and at-risk youth, Aaron decided to change the direction of his work and use the creative energy and skills he developed in non-traditional educational settings to benefit the students at Adams State.

As part of his diverse background, he has worked to develop educational curriculum for state delinquent youth programs, delivered addresses to audiences over 3,500 persons, taught Leadership Development for the Thousand Points of Light programs, and made fire by rubbing two sticks together. What that means for the students of ASU is simple--fun times abound with Aaron around!

Aaron lives in Alamosa on a two acre organic farm and can be found chasing his flock of free range chickens or selling fresh produce at the local farmers market with his wife and son.
