Integrative Student Services

Our integrative student services team is made up of student affairs professionals who engineer engaging, supportive, and inclusive virtual (and later on-campus!) experiences for students. Each degree program has a dedicated team member who works to get to know and support students as individuals while also helping engage students in working together to shape community within the cohort. Students can connect with their integrative student services staff member for academic coaching, personal support, program-specific co-and extra-curricular activities, and more!

“Mary is originally from Nicaragua and has lived in the United States since she was 13 years old (in her own words, “a very long, long time ago!”). She received her Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology from Edinboro University. In her spare time, she volunteers and fosters for a dog rescue group, and likes learning about different cultures through culinary experiences. She is very passionate about helping students succeed academically, building relationships and making sure everyone feels their voice matters. She is affectionately known by the students as “Mama Mary””
