Welcome message from Julie Joffray, Intervention Specialist for the ELITE Graduate Program:
Hi! I'm Julie Joffray. I'm the Intervention Specialist for the ELITE Graduate Program. Come on in!
My knowledge of campus resources is one of the many services and programs offered through the ELITE Graduate Program.
I have been at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi since 1995 in many capacities - from undergraduate student, to graduate student and Graduate Assistant, to ten years as full-time professional staff. So, I've been around campus long enough to know a thing or two about how the University works... and if I don't know the answer, chances are best I'll know where to find out.
Besides being the go-to person in regards to on-campus resources and procedures, I can also assist you in finding some off-campus resources and services as well. I can facilitate networking opportunities for the ELITE Cohort members, and I'm a good sounding board for your ideas, frustrations, and strategies.
I am a first generation college graduate and know what it is like to juggle family, school, and work...not necessarily in that order. So I know the importance of a support system. So let me be part of your support team! My ultimate goal is your goal...to obtain your degree with the least amount of disruption and distraction. So, let's get together sometime. We can talk via email (Julie.Joffray@tamucc.edu), on the phone (361-825-3327), or in person.
I'm located in the ELITE Suite on the second floor of the Early Childhood Development Center, commonly known as the ECDC. The ELITE Suite is a comfortable welcoming place for you to study, meet with small groups, or just to relax. Come by and check it out... and say "Hi" to me while you're here.
Oh! One more thing before I go... If you qualify to be a member with the ELITE Cohort and haven't applied, what are you waiting for? Go back to our main page, click on the green Graduate Students button, and then click on Apply today.
