Colleen SchmitAlumni Relations Officer

Even before joining the School of Human Ecology myself, I had heard that it is a special place. Now that I work here, I see firsthand how true that is. The human-centric work that students, scholars, and alumni do every day inspires me. As I build connections with alumni, donors, and students, I realize more and more how much the people in the Human Ecology community are what make it so exceptional.

Previously, I worked in development and communications with nonprofit organizations and on campus. It is an honor to work in advancement as the School of Human Ecology’s alumni relations officer.
