Meet the new member of our team, Quin!

Quin serves as the Associate Director for Student Equity, Access, and Retention as part of the Center for Diversity & Inclusion (CDI). Prior to joining AU, she worked in the field of Housing and Residential Life for ten years in a variety of roles and capacities. Working at a mixture of land-grant, religious affiliated, ivy-league, state systems, and private institutions Quin created spaces for equitable practices and resources that carved out a sense of belonging and connection for the students that she worked with and alongside. A huge emphasis of work for Quin was through equitable practices within Student Conduct and Community Standards, Title IX support, resources, and practices, Facilities Management to help troubleshoot after hours concerns, and establishing spaces of support for students traversing mental physical health concerns, to name a few.

Outside of work, Quin is an avid outdoors gal having hiked and camped out in the wilderness among Skydiving and other extreme outdoor adventures. She also loves to cycle, read, listen to music from her growing vinyl collection, and being a mom to her little tabby cat, Oliver!

You can reach to Quin via email: [email protected]

Dear students:

We’re approaching the end of the year, and there’s so much added pressure to the movement from 2022 to 2023. You’re looking at what you wanted to do, didn’t do, and things you did do! Another year is an accomplishment. So, as you take this break, be sure to break, rest, spend time with people who value you, cherish you, and energizes you for the quality of your life.

We hope CDI continues to be a place where you find your community, and a place that encourages you to thrive here at AU.

Enjoy Your Break!
