“Students who enroll at Neumont entrust us with their educational and professional future,” said Jeremiah Harrison, manager of academic systems and faculty chair for general education at Neumont College of Computer Science. “We do not take that great responsibility lightly.” Harrison says the College's entire focus is on each individual student and striving to fulfill our commitment to them, which he describes as “providing [them] with life-changing educational opportunities that lead to fulfilling careers.”
Associate Director of Admissions Jasmine Peña echoes Harrison's sentiments. “We see the value in the Neumont model and the positive impact it can have on our students." When asked how her team is student-centered, she went on to say, “Our focus is not just current students, but we are also working to find future students who would benefit from our educational system. We look for ways to partner with alumni that benefit the entire student-cycle: from prospective students, to current students, and graduates.”
Director of Financial Aid Nate Blanchard says being student-centered goes well-beyond the classroom and the project-based curriculum: “It also has to do with understanding and recognizing the financial burden placed on today’s college students,” He says, noting that his team is tasked with discovering ways to support students and minimize their financial burden any way possible. Whether that’s through finding grants or scholarships, gaining an understanding of financial literacy, or helping students understand the importance of budgeting, ultimately his team is working for the student.
Chief Financial Officer Andrew Fullmer notes that every day choices in the workplace effect students, “The resources we oversee are directly related to tuition costs. So every employee is tasked with using those resources wisely, ultimately to provide the best services possible to our students—past, present and future.”
