Kelly joins us as the inaugural director of the Office of Academic Resources after serving in a similar role for NYU in Abu Dhabi for nearly three years. As the Associate Dean for Student Learning Resources and Dean for First Year Students, Kelly was charged with creating an Academic Resource Center and Office for Disability Services from scratch. Having spent ten years prior to that in the Dean's Office and Athletics at Swarthmore College, she is very excited to be a part of the tri-co community once again. As an undergraduate she studied Political Science and International Relations at Swarthmore College, with a focus on East Asian Studies. She completed her Master's in Psychological Services at the University of Pennsylvania, and is currently finishing her doctorate in Higher Education Management at Penn as well. Kelly is particularly drawn to the potential for close and creative collaboration with faculty and students at Haverford and excited to welcome the community to the new office.
