Advising center adds experienced staffers

Two experienced new advisors are joining UIndy’s Center for Advising and Student Achievement this fall.

Erica Pedroza and Megan Chaille, both with backgrounds in college advising, adjunct teaching and youth mentoring, are well-suited to the individualized, proactive, developmental approach practiced at UIndy, CASA Director Lela Mixon said.

Pedroza previously worked in advising at Ivy Tech Community College-East Chicago. A Notre Dame graduate, she interned with the National Coalition for the Homeless in Washington, D.C., and also has mentored high school students for the past three years.

Chaille’s advising experience was gained at Indiana University-Purdue University Columbus. She holds a master of social work degree from the University of Texas and a bachelor’s degree in psychology and law & society from Purdue University. She also has served as a consultant for the Indiana Youth Institute.

Both will begin work Sept. 2.
