Meet Talia Koronkiewicz: New Assistant Vice President for Student Services

Talia Koronkiewicz has been named the assistant vice president for Student Services at Vol State. In her new role she will manage the student conduct and discipline process, as well as supervise the Offices of Student Life and Diversity, TRIO, and Disability Services. She comes most recently from McHenry County College in Illinois where she was manager of Student Conduct and Campus Life. She also served as the student conduct officer and coordinator of Student Life and Campus Activities at McHenry.

“I felt this Vol State position was a perfect complement to my skill set,” Dr. Koronkiewicz said. “Right now student conduct is my primary focus. I want people to understand the process. I want to help faculty with classroom management. We want the campus community to feel safe and have a clear reporting process when there are problems.”

For the other side of her responsibilities, student engagement, Dr. Koronkiewicz says that she will work to build relationships on campus to identify opportunities for students to become involved. “My background started in student activities. We will be working to get our employees more involved in student engagement initiatives to increase student success. We need to ask the faculty members what they are doing in class, so we can supplement that with out of class activities which enhance the academic experience.”

Koronkiewicz holds a Doctor of Education in Community College Leadership from Ferris State University in Michigan. She has a master of arts from Ball State University in Indiana and a bachelor of science degree from Carroll College in Wisconsin.

Talia says you can best pronounce her last name as “kronk-kih-witz.”
