In September 2022, Dr. Valerie Harper was named the Director of Inclusive Excellence for the Thomas R. Kline School of Law of Duquesne University. Dr. Harper was most recently the Registrar of the Duquesne Kline School of Law, where she managed the administrative, personnel, financial, and student records of that office. In that role, she also was a trusted mentor to students of color.
In her new position as the Director of Inclusive Excellence, Dr. Harper draws from her experiences of more than 20 years advising students at Duquesne University and from her own knowledge in striving to create a community of inclusion.
Prior to her Registrar position, Dr. Harper served Duquesne as an Assistant to the Resident Director of Resident Life, Academic Counselor, Career Counselor, and Adjunct Professor for the Spiritan Division. She also served as a summer adjunct at Carnegie Mellon University. She brings the caring, giving, and insight from these positions to law students as she undertakes her new role.
