Constance Dombroski Named Director of Wilkes University’s Center for Health Sciences and Student Success
Constance Dombroski of Dallas, Pa., has been named director of Wilkes University’s new Center for Health Sciences and Student Success.
Dombroski will assist with recruiting, retaining and advising undergraduate students in the College of Science and Engineering. Initially, many of Ms. Dombroski’s activities will be in support of the University’s health sciences programs, including pre-med, pre-physical therapy, pre-occupational therapy and clinical laboratory sciences. Dombroski will also oversee development of the Center for Student Success to support additional student retention efforts across the College of Science and Engineering.
For William B. Hudson, dean of the College of Science and Engineering, the position makes a positive statement about how the college and campus adapt and embrace change to support student needs. “We wanted to make sure the position supports the students and make sure all students considering health careers feel welcome.”
Before arriving at Wilkes, Dombroski served as senior assistant director of student affairs for the north and south campuses of The Commonwealth Medical College. At TCMC, she was responsible for student advising and assessment, as well as planning for events such as orientation and commencement.
Dombroski earned a master of science degree in secondary school counseling from the University of Scranton and a bachelor of science degree in psychology from Misericordia University.
The director position combines Dombroski’s career and educational experience. “I look forward to increasing collaboration among departments across Wilkes University to be successful in not only recruiting and retaining students in the College of Science and Engineering, but also in placing these students within their chosen career.”
