Rachel Riley serves as the Assistant Director of Admissions for the Morgridge College of Education, helping to oversee and support the application and enrollment processes for several departments, working closely with prospective and admitted students, and managing the communication plans for the admissions team. Since beginning at Morgridge in January 2017, Rachel has represented MCE on the University of Denver’s Staff Advisory Council, presented at the 2019 AccessLex Institute annual conference, and completed her Master of Arts in Higher Education. The opportunity to meaningfully engage with prospective students and make an impact on their lives, however large or small, is what drives Rachel to continue striving for more equitable and inclusive admissions practices and policies – Morgridge allows her the space to do so because the MCE community doesn’t settle for the status quo.
As a student at the University of Denver long ago, I was struck by the sincerity of the community. After working for non-profit and government agencies for many years, the opportunity to return to my alma mater was one that I could not resist. Being able to contribute to the Morgridge College of Education is more than a “job”. It is a chance to help buttress the processes and practices that promote inclusive excellence, provide support to amazing faculty and students who contribute to social justice every day, and be a part of an organization dedicated to positive social change.
