Karen Rouggly, DMin, is the director for mobilization in the Center for Student Action and is in charge of developing transformational service opportunities for all students serving locally, nationally, and internationally. Prior to working for the Center for Student Action, Rouggly was a U.S.-based missionary recruiting for a South African organization, and also worked in public and nonprofit education. She specializes in helping students integrate their faith and vocation through service experiences because it was her time as an undergraduate at APU that helped her develop a passion for community development, transformational service, and helping students understand cross-cultural ministry. She and her family reside in Azusa.
