Molly has just begun her new position at Swarthmore as Administrative Assistant for Interdisciplinary programs. Molly comes to us from the Inside-Out Prison Exchange Program as their Think Tank Coordinator. She previously served as Administrative Assistant for the Karrie Gavin Group at Elfant Wissahickon Realtors. Molly has also worked extensively with the Leaders Corps of the University Community Collaborative and she served as an intern at the Urban Institute in Washington, D.C. before that.

Molly graduated from Temple University’s Honors College, with a magna cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa distinctions, and a major in Political Science and minor in Geography and Urban Studies. She was also on Temple’s Dean’s List and has received recognition including the Diamond Award for University and Community Excellence, the Political Science Award for Excellence, and the William Seyler Award. Molly has a wide range of scholarly research contributions as well as community advocacy and leadership experience.

Molly writes, “As a life-long learner with a wide variety of academic interests related to identity, community, and history, I feel very at home in the Interdisciplinary Programs office, helping to connect all these individually important and deeply connected programs of study to ensure that they run smoothly.”

We are honored to have this talented, conscientious, warm, and accomplished addition to Swarthmore’s staff and broader community. Welcome Molly!
