It wasn’t so very long ago that Dr. Kimberly Cooney was in the same position as the students she is dedicated to guiding in her new role as Manager of Student Success and Retention at Temple University Ambler. “I had to answer the same questions when I was an undergraduate at Temple. What is the right major for me? What profession? How do I achieve my goals,” said Cooney, who graduated with a degree in Psychology from Temple in 2006. “Each student has different needs, particularly when they are starting out; it can be a very complicated process. My goal is to help them determine how they got here and where they want to go.” As Manager of Student Success and Retention, a new position at the Ambler Campus, Cooney will work with the Office of Academic and Student Services to provide direct student services to all current and prospective transfer students at Temple Ambler from initial recruitment through graduation.
