From Nancy Young, Vice President for Student Affairs
Anne Scholl-Fiedler, Director of Career Services Center (CSC), completed her last day of employment at UMBC yesterday, January 30, 2012. As previously announced, Anne has accepted the position of Vice President of Career Services at Stevenson University. I am delighted to announce that Caroline Baker, Director of Corporate Relations for Institutional Advancement, has agreed to serve as Acting Director of Career Services during the interim period.Caroline Baker came to UMBC in January 2006 with a diverse background in business development, economic development, marketing and strategic partnerships. Promoted in 2008 to Director of Corporate and Foundation Relations for the Office of Institutional Advancement (OIA), Caroline has successfully promoted the talent and expertise of UMBC faculty and students to both local and global businesses building key partnerships for the University. Working closely with the President, Provost and campus leaders, she identifies opportunities to match UMBC’s needs with corporate and foundation goals. The Corporate and Foundation Relations team has attracted millions of dollars of annual support for UMBC and our students. She holds a B.A. with Honors from Wesleyan University and an M.B.A. from Loyola University Maryland.
In Anne’s absence, the competent, experienced and committed staff members of the Career Services Center are well prepared to continue the excellent work they do with students, programs and employers to support student success and retention outcomes. Caroline will provide interim support to the Career Services staff by overseeing the employer partnership program, preserving employer contacts, and maintaining outreach efforts. With her background in employer relations and partnership development skills, Caroline possesses a complimentary set of strengths to both build on the success of current staff efforts and to enhance already positive relationships with employers. Caroline will wear two hats for the interim period maintaining core functions of her position in OIA while taking on the additional responsibilities of Acting Director in the CSC.
Caroline brings to this position a wealth of experience and insight. I am very confident that she will be a valuable asset to an already strong Career Service staff. Please join me in welcoming Caroline in her new appointment and supporting her in this important role in our division.
