Program Coordinator for Student Success
College of Arts & Sciences
Dr. Borst says it plainly,
"Karen is one of the most dedicated and hard-working advisors in the College."
As a student success advisor, Karen is responsible to coordinate with offices within the college and across campus to find new ideas and strategies to support students.
Karen was a first-generation college student from a military family. She has a deep
understanding of the obstacles students can face in college. She says we must look
at all factors in students' lives to help identify the resources, assistance, and
interventions necessary for them to be successful. To that end, Karen was part of
the team that established the Jim & Cecilia Edwards Student Emergency Support Fund
in the College of Arts & Sciences. This fund assists Arts & Sciences students who
have unmet financial needs related to basic living expenses.
In addition to advising students in academic jeopardy and serving as an Academic First Responder, Karen also participates in the A&S Learning Community as the liaison for the College.
