New advisor eager to assist distance students
Tania Pitzer worked in the Students with Disabilities Office serving on-campus students for 10 years, assessing prospective students’ needs and providing training and general office support. As the new MSPM advisor, she is looking forward to working with distance education students. She will also provide outreach services to MSCJ students.
“This is a good opportunity to learn more about other aspects of campus and to expand my knowledge. In the DLC, I’ll have a broader picture of the university and be able to do more with the students,” Tania said.
The new part-time MSPM advising position was created to accommodate the increased number of student enrollments. “We have seen a steady growth with the MSPM program over the past several years, and to ensure that we continue to provide excellent services to our students, we knew that an additional advising resource would be needed,” said Outreach Program Manager Amy Griswold, who oversees advising services. “Tania is a great addition to our advising team and the MSPM program.”
Tania is originally from Macomb, Ill. She attended Western Illinois University for three years, before transferring to UW-Platteville. She graduated with her bachelor’s degree in business administration in 1999.
“I’m looking forward to making connections with the distance students and helping them get their degrees,” Tania said.
