Robyn Meunier to Join Program of Mortuary Science as Student Services Professional

February 7, 2016

Student Services Professional in the Program of Mortuary Science on Tuesday, March 1.  Robyn succeeds Molly Diethelm, who served in this position for the past seven years, and has now left the University to work in the private sector. 

Robyn has spent the past decade working in higher education, with a focus on student services activities.  Having graduated from the University (Twin Cities campus) in 2005 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science, Robyn embarked upon a career in service to higher education.  From 2006-2011, she was employed at Kaplan University (Chicago), where she assisted students in various capacities through her work in the Office of the Registrar.  She was appointed Kaplan University's Assistant Registrar in 2009.  Since 2011, she has served as the Admissions and Enrollment Coordinator for the University of Minnesota's Center for Allied Health Programs. 

Robyn brings to our Program extensive experience with the University's operating systems, enrollment and registration procedures, recruiting activities, assessment, and perhaps most important, student advising.  We are thrilled that she will be joining our team and are looking forward to her first day with us in just a couple of weeks.

We will hold an "open house" meet-and-greet event for Robyn once she has had a chance to get settled into her new office.  A date will be announced in the near future.  I wish to thank faculty members Michael Mathews, Angela Woosley, and Jody LaCourt for their assistance with the search and interview process.  Their efforts are deeply appreciated.

In the meantime, if you have any questions about the operation of the Program, please do not hesitate to contact me at mortsci@umn.edu.  Let us do our best to give Robyn a very warm Program of Mortuary Science welcome.  She will be only the third person to hold this position in 52 years.  We hope she will enjoy her work with us for many years to come.

Sincerely,

Michael LuBrant
