Ewa Wodzinska, Academic Support Manager Ewa Wodzinska
Ewa considers herself an NLU veteran, having 20+ years of full time employment under her belt, though her NLU roots go even deeper: before working for NLU, Ewa has been an ESL student at NLU’s renowned Language Institute starting classes in 1991 and then continuing her studies here, earning her BA in International Business. She enjoyed her experience here so well that she also worked on campus as a student and then in 1997 accepted a full time position at the college (formerly College of Management and Business, CMB). 

As she progressed through her career from Faculty Assistant to Assistant to the Dean and subsequently to an Academic Support Manager, Ewa also earned her graduate degrees: MS in Human Recourse Administration followed by a MA in Psychology and a certificate in Clinical Counseling. She also successfully taught introductory business courses at CMB in an Adjunct capacity, but ultimately decided that her calling was in serving students as an advisor, which she did through her career at CMB and then CPSA.

It is safe to say that Ewa understands the NLU experience from all perspectives: that of a student, teacher and an employee, and that, as an immigrant and  a beneficiary of receiving education at NLU herself,  she deeply believes in the university’s mission of providing a superior and supportive educational experience for students of all ages and backgrounds. 

Though no longer working directly with students, she now supports college’s Strategic Planning work which focuses on quality of instruction and student experience at the college.
