Sarah Lively Turner '98
Director of Alumni & Donor Relations
Graduation is not the end of Concord’s commitment to you. Sarah Turner works to keep alumni connected to their alma mater and to be a resource to them long after they leave campus. From emails and social media to our CU After Hours events, Sarah’s goal is to keep as many alums as possible connected to the university. Strong connections like these will make possible future mentoring programs that will connect alums to current students. Sarah, an alum that comes from a family of Concordians, has a strong loyalty to this university, like many of our graduates. Several of our scholarships are made possible through alumni financial support. When you choose Concord University, you become part of a legacy and the Alumni office will make sure you stay connected.
Director of Bonner Scholars Program
“Concord has not only provided me with an education and employment, but also with friends and mentors and the opportunity to connect with some amazing students.”
As the director of the Bonner Scholars Program, Kathy helps support scholars by distributing scholarship funds, teaching life skills like goal setting, time management, and budgeting, and even providing emotional support if needed. Kathy says the goal of the program is to do everything within their power to help each individual student in the program successfully complete their degree. But also, she hopes that as scholars leave Concord, they become good citizens who engage with their community and continue to serve long after their Bonner days.
Dr. Tracy Luff
Professor of Sociology
The sociology field is ever growing, and Dr. Luff is committed to evolving the CU program. There is now an emphasis in Criminology for students interested in law related careers. She is working on a new course in Medical Sociology for students planning careers in health and medicine. Dr. Luff says this will also help students prepare for the sociology component of the MCAT. The department also offers minors in Women & Gender Studies and Addiction Studies. Regardless of what your career aspirations are, Dr. Luff and our faculty are committed to meeting the needs and interests of our students.
