Welcome Back

Welcome back, Huskies! We hope you all had an enjoyable summer, and are ready to engage in another exciting semester at Northern Illinois University.

The office of Student Conduct is pleased to welcome three new staff members to their team. Joy Mitchell has accepted the role of Assistant Director, while Suzie Geisler and Kelsey Nell are serving as Graduate Assistants during the 2016-2017 school year. All three individuals began their respective duties in August.

Joy Mitchell obtained both her Bachelor of Science degree in sociology and her Master of Science in Education degree with an emphasis in community mental health counseling from Northern Illinois University. Joy previously spent time working as an NIU police officer and as an Academic Counselor at Kishwaukee College. Joy's background in higher education and policing has brought her home to Northern Illinois University. Joy enjoys partaking in creative endeavors, including singing, painting, and listening to music.

Suzie Geisler graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Augustana College with degrees in psychology and Spanish. Currently, she is pursuing a Master of Science in Education degree with an emphasis in clinical mental health counseling. She is a third-generation Huskie on both sides of her family. In her free time, she enjoys baking, cooking, singing, and spending time with her family and friends.

Kelsey Nell graduated from Western Illinois University with a degree in social work. While attending WIU, Kelsey enjoyed serving as a Resident Assistant—in particular, supporting students with their first-year transition into college. She is currently pursuing a Master of Science in Education degree with an emphasis in school counseling. Kelsey is passionate about traveling, running, and all things Disney!

The Student Conduct office encourages you to stop by and meet their new staff!
