School welcomes Jordan Regan to help its undergraduate students achieve their potential

We are pleased to welcome Jordan Regan to the School of Computing as Student Success Project Officer.

The Student Success Project is a University of Kent initiative that commits to helping every student to achieve the best degree that they can. Jordan will be working as part of the professional services team and with Student Success Lecturer, Jacqui Chetty, to evaluate and improve the retention, attainment and progression of undergraduate students.

Jordan started work the day before the Covid-19 lockdown so has been working from home and meeting colleagues virtually.

Jordan graduated from Kent in 2017 with a BA Sociology degree. Since graduating she has worked in Higher Education at Kent Union, Canterbury Christ Church University, and most recently as the Democracy and Engagement Manager at the University of Essex Students’ Union. She is currently studying a part-time Masters in Business and Management.

Jordan said “I was not expecting to start a new job in the middle of a global pandemic. Relocating back to Kent a few days before lockdown was an unexpected challenge, as is having to meet the majority of my colleagues online and work from home. However, both the Student Success Project and School of Computing teams have been incredibly welcoming and have really helped me to understand my role. Having studied at Kent, I am fortunately very familiar with the University and look forward to starting to work back on campus. I am excited to meet students and staff from the School of Computing in person, and to begin supporting the delivery of various interventions.”

We look forward to working with Jordan and meeting her in person as soon as we are back on campus.
