Angela VanDijk, who has served as the bioengineering undergraduate program coordinator and advisor since 2013, is the Department of Bioengineering’s new Director of Student Services. In this newly created role, Angela will oversee all degree program operations and is responsible for organizing and managing student recruitment, retention and engagement activities. She will work closely with staff, faculty, and other individuals across our campuses to ensure that bioengineering students receive the guidance and support they need to be successful in their given programs.
Angela comes to us with more than 15 years of experience in student and academic affairs. Prior to moving to Colorado she lived in New York City where she served as an Assistant Dean in the Division of Student Affairs at Columbia University and more recently as the Acting Director of Advising Services at the City University of New York’s Hunter College.
In an effort to support students on both the CU Denver and CU Anschutz Medical Campuses, Angela will maintain two office locations. She invites students to email her at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 303-724-9972 to inquire about her schedule or to make an appointment.
Please join the bioengineering department in welcoming Angela as she transitions into this role. We know she will do a great job but also would appreciate your patience as she fits into her new responsibilities.
