ROCK HILL, S.C. – Katie Sardelli will assume the newly created position of director of the Resource Center for Adult Students on Aug. 27.

She has worked as a residence learning coordinator in the Margaret Nance Residence Hall for the past five years and is familiar with Winthrop’s existing resources, program planning and advising, said Gloria Jones, dean of University College.

“Katie was selected because she has a wealth of knowledge about Winthrop, about the resources on this campus that will be available to these populations, about advising, and about our culture and what we value,” Jones said. “She is very student-centered, approachable and professional.”

Sardelli will report to Jones and will work in providing services to non-traditional students, transfers and veterans.

“We anticipate these three populations will grow at Winthrop. We want to make sure their needs, which are different from those of the incoming freshmen, are met as soon as they come on campus,” Jones said. Students who have veterans benefits will still work through the Office of Records and Registration, while support and programing will be taken care of in the Resource Center for Adult Students, based in Dinkins Hall.

Winthrop anticipates serving more veterans in undergraduate and graduate programs now that the university recently achieved Yellow Ribbon status with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. Winthrop has pledged to offer 20 undergraduate and 5 graduate scholarships worth $6,000 annually to veteran students.

Jones said Sardelli spent time over the past few months researching trends in adult, transfer and veteran education as her summer project related to her academic associate position in University College. Winthrop residence learning coordinators also hold academic associate positions in the college and have teaching experience. Sardelli and her peers learned about programs at peer institutions and compiled a list of frequently offered resources.

Sardelli is a Phi Beta Kappa graduate from the College of William and Mary with a degree in economics. She also holds a master of science in college student personnel from Miami University of Ohio.
