Meet Hillary

Assistant Director, Upper Division

Hillary Kovacs


As an Assistant Director, I supervise and support the professional staff working with the upper division student communities and help to lead the department's initiatives related to student staff selection and development. I am passionate about supporting the experiences of staff and students and ensuring that processes, procedures, and programs are built to enhance that work. In my role, this is best demonstrated through offering leadership and support for department committees, learning-centered engagement opportunities, and the general resident and staff experience.
