Staff

Meyerhoff Scholars Program staff members play a vital role in providing the nurturing and supportive environment that is at the heart of the program’s success. Staff members keep students focused and on track on campus, meeting regularly for academic advising and preparation for graduate and professional schools.

Staff members regularly hold group meetings – called “family meetings” – with students and are not only concerned with academic planning and performance, but also with any personal problems students may have. Parents and family members are in close contact with Meyerhoff staff members, as well and find the sense of community to be a critical component in their student’s success.

We invite you to contact Meyerhoff Scholars Program staff members with questions or concerns and have provided a brief listing of duties and responsibilities to help direct your inquiry to the appropriate person. We look forward to hearing from you.
