Associate Academic Adviser
Sr. Anne Walsh, RHSM
Since Sister Anne Walsh came to Fordham, in 1989, she has served in a variety of capacities. Chief among them is the development and leadership of Queen’s Court Integrated Living and Learning experience for freshmen, from 1997-2008. In 1998, she was invited to join the staff of Academic Advising for student-athletes. While Sister Anne’s area of concentration is Football, she is available to all student-athletes, for individual and group academic assistance. In addition, she continues to be an advisor for Queen’s Court residents.
Sister Anne graduated from Marymount College, Tarrytown, NY, with a major in English. She did her graduate studies at The Catholic University, Washington, DC, (Education); Virginia Commonwealth University, (English); and Fordham University, (Religious Studies). She served as an editor for the NCEA Association in publishing papers from the Principals’ Academy: Capital Wisdom (1991) and The Power Of Our Ideas (1992). She holds certificates in counseling and spiritual direction. She was a member of The National Seminar on Jesuit Higher Education for a three-year term.
Sr. Anne lives on campus and is thereby available to students, for extra assistance, after hours, on weekends and for early morning study hall. She supervises the student-workers, recruits, coordinates and assigns student-tutors, and acts as a liaison between the office and other university departments in responding to office needs.
A goal for Sister Anne is making sure that student-athletes are represented in significant university events and that they are also considered for the annual Leadership Awards. She values staying in touch with them, after they leave Fordham, as she follows their progress and achievements.
