Kayla PersonDirector of Engineering Graduate Programs
Interim MEM Coordinator
I am available to help with any questions regarding graduate school and Graduate Programs in the College of Engineering. In my role as Director of Graduate Programs in the College of Engineering I coordinate many recruitment initiatives to promote our graduate programs, but I also work to support our current students through coordination of professional and personal development seminars, awarding of professional development fellowships, and act as a resource for any questions among other duties. I also work to promote undergraduate research opportunities in the College.
I have previously held roles as an undergraduate academic advisor to both traditional and non-traditional students, an undergraduate admissions graduate intern, and administrative support staff.
I recently graduated from UNL with a PhD in Educational Studies specializing in Higher Education and Leadership. I have also earned a MA in Educational Administration specializing in Student Affairs from UNL (2011) and a BS in Journalism and Mass Communications from South Dakota State (Go Jackrabbits!). I am originally from Sioux Falls, SD.
