BioDeborah comes to Stanford from Gonzaga University, where she served as the founding Director of the Center for Student Academic Success. Deborah created the Center to be a one-stop-shop of integrated essential academic services and resources such as academic advising, supplemental learning support, and disability services. In addition to providing leadership and strategy for student success, Deborah taught first-year experience and academic recovery courses, provided consultation to faculty on course design and classroom management, and served as a regional accreditation evaluator.
As a first-generation college student who struggled mightily during her undergraduate education, Deborah is naturally drawn to the work of student success in higher education. She is driven by her desire to create equitable and adaptive learning environments where students are empowered to be active and independent learners.
Deborah holds an undergraduate degree in political science and a master’s degree in organizational leadership, both from Gonzaga.
