Hello, my name is Gerri Collier and I started working at CWRU in Residence Life in December 2014. I support the four Residential College Directors or (RCDs), and the four Assistant Residential College Directors or (ARCDs) for the First Year Experience students. Our goal is to help the students’ transition from being away from home, in most cases, for the first time; into college, and helping them achieve their academic goals by helping direct them to overcome their hurdles.
I got my Associates Degree from Indiana Wesleyan University (IWU). Before coming to CWRU, I worked for the Cleveland Metropolitan School District (CMSD) in an afterschool program called The 21st Century Community Learning Center (21st CCLC).
I love working with/for as I call them “my scholars”. They keep me on my toes. I think Cleveland is the best place on earth to live; the people are friendly and helpful. I am a native Clevelander and during my spare time, I love to bake spending time with family and friends. I love to garden, watch TV/movies, play board and card games. I enjoy food tasting, concerts, and plays.
