Eun-sil Lee has joined the College as Dean for the Class of ’25.
She also will be serving as a point of contact for leave of absence processes.
“Eun-sil Lee is a student support specialist who believes education is a vehicle for change,” said Ryan Keytack, interim vice president for student affairs. “She reflects that in her work experience with students from diverse backgrounds, first as a school psychologist in Los Angeles and then as an advisor in the Opportunity Program at Skidmore College.”
“She approaches student support with a philosophy that centers on raising critical consciousness, empowerment and ownership,” Keytack added.
“I am very excited to be joining the student affairs team at Union,” Lee said. “I am thankful for the opportunity to be a part of the Union community and am looking forward to working with my colleagues to create a more supportive, connective community for all Union students.”
Lee holds a B.S. in psychology from Tulane University, an M.A. in counseling and educational psychology from Loyola Marymount University, and a Ph.D. in social welfare from the State University of New York at Stony Brook.
She is active as a volunteer for non-profits focused on communities in various African countries including Malawi, where she was born and raised.
Keytack said she will get to know Union over the next few weeks and take on advising her class at the start of winter term in January.
