As the new Assistant Director of Admissions, Ms. Powley is focused on increasing awareness of College of Law opportunities available to both traditional and non-traditional law students. She plans to utilize marketing and recruitment strategies in furtherance of the UNTDCOL mission. Specifically, she will work to highlight the benefits of a legal education as a primary career path for new college graduates, as well as a secondary career path for adults in the workforce.
