SHSS Alum Appointed Assistant Director at Bethune-Cookman University

Donielle Cyprian

Dorielle Cyprian, M.S.

Dorielle Cyprian, M.S., graduate of the M.S. in College Student Affairs (CSA) program in NSU’s Graduate School of Humanities and Social Sciences (SHSS), has been named the Assistant Director of Student Involvement and Student Leadership at Bethune-Cookman University. Bethune-Cookman University, a member of HBCUs (Historically Black Colleges and Universities), is located in Daytona Beach with an enrollment of about 3,600 students.

According to Cyprian, “My time at NSU has been the best. I was nervous at first in pursuing a degree online and the feeling of being alienated, but my experience was just the opposite; the classes were inviting and engaging and faculty and staff were so supportive. The time I spent at NSU has been a joy and after graduating I feel that the education that I have gained has made me the best Student Affairs Professional. I couldn’t have asked for a better program to help me to the next level in my career.”

In addition to her master’s degree from NSU, Cyprian earned a bachelor’s degree in Child Development from Southern University and Agricultural and Mechanical College at Baton Rouge. Prior to coming to Bethune-Cookman University, she was a business coordinator at Georgia State University in Atlanta.
