Allison Garris

Assistant Dean of Admissions

I earned my bachelor’s in Psychology from CCSU, masters in Human Development and Family Studies from URI, and I am working towards an EdD from CCSU. I love helping students because they are resilient, and it is rewarding to give them the encouragement they need to take the next step. In my free time, I love to read, spend time with my family, and make up excuses to go to Starbucks.
