Paul BreitkreutzRetention and Student Success Coordinator
I serve as the Retention & Student Success Coordinator in Engineering Student Services. In this position I lead retention and student success efforts on both campuses by researching student trends within the College of Engineering, the University of Nebraska system, and across the country. I have worked at UNL since graduate school. Before coming to ESS, I served as the Senior Data Analyst for the College of Engineering, as an Academic Advisor and Coordinator of Advising Technology Systems at the Exploratory and Pre-Professional Advising Center, and as a Lecturer and Academic Advisor in the Department of Sociology.
In my free time, I hang out with my wife and two daughters, train for trail races ranging from half marathons to ultramarathons, and find any excuse I can to be outdoors.
