Marsella Named NY6 Project Manager

Kimberly Marsella of Wilton, NY, will join the New York Six Liberal Arts Consortium as project manager, effective August 16. In this role, Marsella will be responsible for coordinating the member schools’ academic and co-curricular collaborations, particularly in faculty development, faculty research, off-campus study, and undergraduate student research.

For more than 20 years, Marsella has been at Skidmore College, most recently as director of academic advising, a position she has held since 2013. Other roles she has held at Skidmore include Environmental Sciences program coordinator and lecturer, and director of special programs. She has participated in a broad range of academic-related committees at Skidmore, has been the recipient of numerous grants, has mentored several student research projects, and is a frequent presenter at academic and professional conferences and meetings. Marsella holds a bachelor’s degree from Bates College and a master’s degree from the University of Vermont, both in geology.

“Kim brings a wealth of experience in academic program administration, working extensively with faculty and staff to ensure student success,” said Amy Cronin, executive director of the New York Six. “In addition, she has participated in a number of Consortium programs and has a keen understanding of how the New York Six can enhance the experience of faculty and students through collaboration.”
