From early on in his professional life, Aaron Coffey knew he wanted a career in higher education. The closer he could get to working with and helping people achieve their dreams of a college degree, the happier he would be.
Today, in his still-relatively-new-role as director of graduate psychology enrollment management, Coffey finds himself as immersed in higher ed as ever. And, he’s loving it.
“It’s been wonderful and overwhelming,” Coffey said from his office on the second level of Foyle Hall. “We have wonderful students here. Everyone seems to value what I bring to the table. It’s been a fun experience, and it’s been really interesting to be thrown out of my comfort zone.”
