A Message from John Riccardi, Assistant Dean for Graduate and
International Programs:

"Dear Friends:
I am most pleased to announce the arrival today of Shannon Supitkowsky, the Office of Graduate and International Programs' new Program Coordinator. Shannon brings to our school a broad range of student support and administrative experiences at Boston University. Since 2008, she has served as an administrative secretary at BU's Office of Residence Life. She also worked as a Customer Service Representative/Office Assistant for that office when she was a BU undergraduate. Shannon received her BA in English from BU in 2008 and anticipates receiving her MA in English this spring. She is also pursuing her Master of Education in Policy, Planning and Administration (with a sub-concentration in Higher Education) at BU's School of Education, from which she expects to graduate in May 2013.

Feel feel free to stop by to welcome her in our office in room 1534. Shannon's email is sups25@bu.edu."
