Because of the growth of our online student population at Wilmington University, we have added a second online navigator to further support students. The Online Learning Department welcomes Lauren Havens, who joins Kelly Clayton as an Online Student Navigator.
Lauren has over seven years of counseling experience and Online Learning. She began her career in the advertising and financial industries and, after attaining her Master’s Degree in Counseling, returned to college to counsel students in Career Development. Lauren has had experience working in large and small organizations and enjoys helping students find their passion and fit that passion into their work. Lauren also teaches online classes with Wilmington University and has helped design an online Capstone Class for seniors.
Kelly Clayton has pioneered the role of Online Student Navigator since 2012. “Having Lauren as a second navigator will enable us to implement initiatives that will further improve your online student experience,” Clayton said.
Many other institutions have a student navigator, helping students overcome obstacles to achievement. But Wilmington University recognizes that online students need support and navigation that differs from their face-to-face peers.
Online Student Navigators provide online students with personalized guidance for their online learning experience. From financial aid, scheduling, and classes, the Navigators are ready to assist you with any questions you may have.
