Shadyside Resident Named Assistant Dean of Student Affairs in Nursing
The Duquesne University School of Nursing has named Kate DeLuca as assistant dean of student affairs. DeLuca, who most recently served as a graduate academic advisor in nursing at Duquesne, follows Dr. Leah Vota Cunningham, who served as assistant dean for 10 years and has returned to full-time teaching.
"I'm thrilled to be able to work with both undergraduate and graduate students again, and to foster their transition into the program, help them to be successful and to see them graduate," said DeLuca, a resident of Shadyside.
DeLuca earned bachelor's degrees in both political science and marketing from Duquesne in 2004, and an MBA from the University in 2008. In addition, she received the 2013 President's Consumer Service Award at Duquesne, and in 2011, she was among the group to receive the President's Team Award.
A member of the National Academic Advising Association, DeLuca also serves on numerous committees for the School of Nursing.
