Meet Grace!

September 13, 2021 12:10 PM

Hello, my name is Grace De Oro (she, her) and I am the Adult Learner Graduate Assistant for Off-Campus Student Services. This August I celebrated 2 years of working alongside the Staff in OCSS.
I am a Ph.D. student in the School of Public Policy and recently graduated in May 2019 from UMBC with my Masters in Public Policy with a concentration in Environmental Policy. I will be hopefully defending my dissertation proposal this year. I am currently focusing my research on nonprofit organizations’ resilience through the COVID-19 Pandemic as well as their relationship to government. I commute from Woodbine, MD (Western Howard County), where I live on a small  5-acre farmincluding cats, horses, a miniature donkey, chickens, ducks, goats, snakes, and many, many dogs.
I will be on-campus in the office on Mondays and Wednesday this semester and working from home on Tuesdays. You can always reach me by email - degrac1@umbc.edu or Adultlearners@umbc.edu
