With three years of experience in the higher education field, Kristen will provide the Jumpstart students with leadership and guidance throughout the six-week summer bridge program and beyond. Kristen has served as the Program Coordinator for Dawg Days: Jumpstart since May 2017 and looks forward to getting to know all of the incoming participants each summer. In addition to planning Dawg Days: Jumpstart, Kristen will continue to teach and advise all the students during their first year at UMBC. Kristen’s passion is to help all new students have a great experience at UMBC and serve as a resource for them along the way!
Graduate Student Interns and Undergraduate Student Tutors
Summer graduate student interns will also be hired to work with the summer bridge students throughout the six-week experience. The graduate student interns are hired from higher education master’s programs and come from colleges and universities across the country to help our new students with their transition to campus. Undergraduate student tutors from the Learning Resources Center (LRC) on campus will also be available to students to assist with coursework. Kristen, the graduate interns, and the undergraduate tutors will provide academic support as well as co-curricular opportunities for all participants.
