College Advisor to Deliver Commencement Speech at GMercyU

Posted on: May 7, 2019

Karen DeVose, assistant director of advising, is this year’s commencement speaker at Philadelphia's Gwynedd Mercy University, where she also is earning a doctorate in educational leadership. “My speech is about the academic journey of a first-generation, underrepresented minority student,” DeVose says. Her doctoral study concerns the impact of First-Year Experience programs on underrepresented populations at predominately white institutions. Congratulations, Karen!
