Lynne O'Connell, M.P.H., has been appointed assistant dean of admission at Fordham College of Liberal Studies in Tarrytown.
“It’s wonderful to be part of the Fordham community,” O’Connell said. “Fordham College of Liberal Studies in Tarrytown is a unique resource for Westchester County and the entire Hudson Valley region, and I’m looking forward to helping reach out to the community to identify and enroll great students.”
In her new role, O’Connell will have responsibility for all recruitment and enrollment of undergraduates, many of whom are working adults and part-time students returning to complete a degree. O’Connell, who began in her newly created position on Jan. 16, had been the recruitment coordinator in the School of Public Health at New York Medical College in Valhalla. Before that, she served as the medical school’s director of annual giving and alumni relations and the admissions coordinator. She has a bachelor’s degree from Daemen College and a Master of Public Health degree from New York Medical College.
Founded in 1841, Fordham is the Jesuit University of New York, offering exceptional education distinguished by the Jesuit tradition to more than 15,600 students in its five undergraduate colleges and its six graduate and professional schools. It has residential campuses in the Bronx, Manhattan and Tarrytown, and the Louis J. Calder Center Biological Field Station in Armonk, N.Y.
