The CALS Office of Academic Affairs has hired Lauren Foley as an advisor in the Transitional Advising and Outreach Services unit. As a member of the TAOS team, Foley will help provide information and academic advising to students and other interested parties relating to programs administered by CALS, with the goal of helping students make successful transitions to or within the CALS community.
Foley completed her M.S. degree in education at UW-La Crosse this past May. Before that, she was a badger at UW-Madison, where she earned a B.A. degree in english as well as a certificate in integrated liberal studies. Over the course of her academic career, Foley has held a variety of career and academic advising positions, including with UW-River Falls’ career services office, UW-Madison College of Letters and Science’s career services office and UW-Madison SOAR. She spent this past summer at Pace University in New York, NY running the university’s student orientation program.
“I am thrilled to come back to UW-Madison, a place where I truly feel at home, and begin my next journey with CALS. This opportunity places me with a dynamic and caring team with students at the forefront of everything that we do,” says Foley.
Foley’s first day will be August 5.
