Georgia Southern’s EAGLE Academy welcomes new director of programming
Georgia Southern University’s inclusive post-secondary education program, EAGLE Academy, welcomed Nicholas Roshkind as the new director of programming on Feb. 1.
“We are so excited to welcome Nick as the new EAGLE Academy program director,” said Stephanie Devine, Ph.D., EAGLE Academy executive director. “His background in academic advising and education adds incredible expertise to our team. He has great ideas for improving our program and supporting our students’ successes.”
Roshkind has been a part of the Georgia Southern academic services community since 2016. As an advisor and first-year seminar course instructor, he focused on student academic success, planning and achievement. Roshkind also served as chair-elect of the University’s Academic Advisor Training Committee where he mentored new advisors.
“I know that I can help students in the Academy whether it is learning a new life skill or guiding them to their next chapter, and it excites me to help the students grow into independent learners,” said Roshkind.
Prior to joining Georgia Southern, Roshkind was the assistant director of enrollment at the Savannah College of Art and Design where he coordinated with high schools across the country for recruitment visits and advocated for applicants in relation to admissions and scholarship decisions.
Roshkind earned a bachelor’s in Spanish from Coastal Carolina University and a master’s in education from the University of New Haven.
