Michael Terrell, the associate director of graduate studies for the Georgia Institute of Technology School of Literautre, Media, and Communication, was recently featured in a spotlight by the Association for Graduate Enrollment Management (NAGAP). His work was highlighted because of his excellence in achieving NAGAP's mission, “to support, advance and engage graduate enrollment professionals by promoting integrity, excellence and collaboration through education and professional development.”
Here's an excerpt:
Michael knew he wanted to be in the world of higher education when he was a part of Georgia Southern’s orientation program (SOAR). This is when he recognized his passion for higher education and working with students. Now, as a proactive and supportive resource for graduate students, Michael takes special care in guiding students throughout their graduate careers. He utilizes “an intrusive approach in my day to day graduate advising practices so that support can be proactive rather that reactive and help prevent the student from becoming a statistic.”
The School of Literature, Media, and Communication is a unit of the Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts.
