Meet the Staff

Angela D'Amour Angela D’Amour, Director of Campus Life

(x7089, adamour@westmont.edu)

Professional and Educational Background
I was born and raised in Beverly, Massachusetts and moved to Santa Barbara to attend Westmont where I studied Psychology and Communication Studies. Because I loved Westmont and the college environment so much, I went on to graduate school at the University of Vermont where I earned an MEd. in Higher Education and College Student Development. I spent 3 years at Dartmouth College working with first-year students and came back to Westmont in 2007 as the Director of Campus Life.

Role in the Office
I’m responsible for overseeing the Campus Life Office, which provides programs and leadership opportunities for students. I seek to guide the development and implementation of departmental vision and objectives. My role includes implementing a philosophy of leadership and learning that grows out of the college mission. One of the highlights of my work is providing direct advising to officers of WCSA and facilitating Orientation..

What I like most about my work at Westmont:
I love being in a place where character and values are infused into the campus environment: where students are continually challenged and implored to care deeply for those around them and where educational advances don’t outpace our ability to consider how and when to use the knowledge that we’ve gained.


Daniel ClappDaniel Clapp, Assistant Director of Campus Life

(x6826, dclapp@westmont.edu)

Professional and Educational Background
I was raised in Washington State and attended Whitworth University where I studied Business Management, Religion, and Leadership Studies. Post-college found me at Geneva College where I earned a Masters of Arts in Higher Education.

While at Geneva College I had the opportunity to serve as a resident director and as the Director of Student Activities.

Feeling a nudge to return to the West Coast, I applied for a resident director position at Westmont and started my journey here in 2006. Most recently I served as the Assistant Director of Residence Life.

Life after Residence Life has found me as the Assistant Director of Campus Life and looking forward to building upon so many great Westmont traditions.

Role in the Office
I work alongside our student-leaders and fellow staff members to plan and implement campus programs such as Orientation, Spring Sing, the Westmont Activities Council (WAC), and other social and educational programming efforts.

What I Like Most About My Work at Westmont
Westmont is a very special place that values holistic education and the pursuit of excellence. I enjoy working with incredible faculty and staff and am continually surprised by the caliber of our students.

Professional and Educational Background
I am third generation Santa Barbara native with a long family history within the Santa Barbara community. I attended Santa Barbara City College to earn an Administrative Assistant certificate. My whole adult life I have been working on raising my three children with my husband Raymond. That is where I received my degree in life, being a full time mom for ten years. Over the past twenty years my husband and I have served in various capacities in our local church as youth leaders, marriage & family counseling, worship ministry, and small group leaders.

Role in the Office
I get the opportunity to work closely with students while I assist the Campus Life Office and Intercultural Programs. Working with the various student groups and organizations brings great joy as I get to help students enjoy their time here at Westmont and grow in their faith.

What I Like Most About My Work at Westmont
I love that I get to be surrounded by students and young adults who are seeking Christ and learning how to walk with Him through their educational journey. It is so awesome to see a community of students who want to make a difference in the world through the love of Christ.
