Academic Enrichment Program Manager
Michele K. Long joined the faculty at the Pennsylvania Institute of Technology as Program Manager for the Academic Enrichment Program in 2005. She earned a bachelor degree from Pennsylvania State University and holds a number of post-graduate certifications in the field of information technology. She also earned a certificate in Network Engineering Technology Administration as a Certified Novell Administrator.
One of her first assignments after joining the College was to create a curriculum that assisted students in strengthening their skills in mathematics, reading comprehension and English.
Michele established the Academic Developmental Program that enables students to strengthen these important skills, while continuing to complete courses in their program of study. This “side-by-side” approach facilitates skill strengthening without delaying graduation for students seeking either associate degrees or certificates.
