Sarah Frankel-Russell

Director of Student Advocacy & Support

I serve as the Director of Student Advocacy and Support after previously serving as the Director of Academic Support and Accessibility Services at the Bryan College of Health Sciences. My earlier experiences at UNL included positions in Undergraduate Education with the William H. Thompson Scholars Learning Community and the College of Arts and Sciences. A two-time alumna of UNL, I hold a Bachelor of Arts with majors in Psychology and English and a Master of Arts in Higher Education Administration and Leadership. I am passionate about supporting students holistically, with particular interest in equity and access, college transition programming, student development theory and proactive student support. Originally from Omaha, I now call Lincoln home with my husband, Alex, and our two cats, Ike and Ruby.
