Staff Spotlight

Kira Fellows

Coordinator of Marketing & Outreach

In September, we're spotlighting our Marketing and Outreach coordinator, Kira! As a double-alumna of UNF and current grad student, Kira has a love for the Nest and a passion for recruiting new Ospreys to join the flock. Kira serves as the department's recruiter and when she's not at the office, you can find her at college fairs across the state promoting our programs. She also coordinates our advertising efforts and makes marketing and promotional materials to disseminate to target populations. If you have questions about marketing or recruitment for your program, feel free to contact her!

The GSO is Official!

In case you haven't heard, the newly-reformed Graduate School Organization is now an officially registered student organization with the Osprey Involvement Center! New members are still welcome and the student officers will be working on organizing events soon. Please encourage your students to join. They can do so through the club Perch Portal profile.
Market Days

Come Table at Market Days

For the Fall 2023 semester, the Graduate School has sponsored a table at Market Wednesdays! We are inviting program representatives to join us to interact with current UNF undergraduates who might be interested in staying at the Nest for a master's degree. This is a great opportunity for programs to recruit new students. GPDs are eligible to table for a half day or full day. The sign-up link is accessible via the button below. 
The Graduate School will provide the tablecloth, the tent, and promotional items. All you have to do is sign up and show up with any program materials you want to distribute! If you have any questions about tabling at Market Days, please contact Kira Fellows.
