Amy Hopkins Mason, PhD
Dr. Amy Hopkins Mason joined the Office of Student Success in the spring of 2022. As the Academic Success Coordinator assigned full-time to the Health Sciences Campus, she provides academic success support and events as well as support for the disability services program.
Dr. Hopkins Mason comes to E&H with broad higher education experience including, academic success, at-risk and probationary support, disability services, first year experience, academic advising, career development, counseling, and other student services. She notes that, although this position capitalizes on her past experience in higher education, it also provides challenge in working with a population graduate students who are all in competitive health sciences programs.
Dr. Hopkins Mason is new to this area and, although she enjoys a variety of hobbies, is particularly looking forward to taking advantage of the VA Creeper Trail and other outside activities available in SW Virginia.
