Director of College Success, Student Engagement

Student Engagement Diversity Inclusion Access

I currently serve as the Director for the College Success, Student Engagement at the Emma Bloomberg Center for Access and Opportunity at Princeton University. In this role, I create, implement, and manage programs and initiatives that support and advance Princeton's commitment to an inclusive student body. In particular, I administer and help set a strategic vision for the Freshman Scholars Institute, an academically rigorous, multi-disciplinary seven-week program for entering Princeton students and the Scholars Institute Fellows Program, a four-year mentorship program for first-generation, lower-income, and underrepresented Princeton students. I collaborate with faculty and staff from across the University to provide high-touch mentorship, programming, and supplemental advising for program participants and other first-generation, lower-income, and historically underrepresented students at Princeton. Prior to this role, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Center for Molecular and Behavioral Neuroscience and the Associate Director for the Rutgers University-Newark African-American Brain Health Initiative (AABHI). As part of the AABHI, I led community-engaged research, education, and outreach initiatives that aimed to mitigate the high incidence of cognitive decline in the African American communities of the Greater Newark, NJ area. In addition to my research at Rutgers University-Newark, I also served as an instructor and mentor in STEM outreach with the Rutgers University-Newark RU Ready for Work program.
