Mallory Kennedy web

Hi, my name is Mallory Kennedy and I'm a proud two-time graduate of The University of Akron. I earned my BA in Business and Organizational Communication in 2015 and my MA in Higher Education Administration from the LeBron James Family Foundation College of Education in May 2018.  Prior to joining joining the LJFFCOE team, I served as an Admissions Counselor in the Office of Admissions. 

In my role as a Pre-admission Advisor, I:

  • Provide pre-admission advising to current UA students, potential transfer students, and prospective freshmen, international, and military students.
  • Assist with outreach, New Student Orientation, Convocation, and recruitment events.
  • Serve as a liaison to COE learning/living communities.

If you're interested in a career in Education, stop in to see me in Zook Hall 002, or call the office for an appointment:  (330) 972-7750.
