Program Coordinator for the Center for STEM Diversity
Courtney Russo joined Tufts in October 2014 as the Staff Assistant within the Center for STEM Diversity, and has since grown into the role of Program Coordinator, as of October 2017. She works alongside the CSD staff to assist with program event planning, most notably with the BEST program, including the summer bridge initiative and the senior graduation banquet. She also leads the BEST peer mentoring program, which includes the planning of monthly social events for the first-year BEST scholars and their upperclassmen mentors.
Courtney comes to Tufts from Pinnacle Advisors Group in Danvers, MA where she was the administrative lead for the office. Courtney has a degree from Curry College in communications, specializing in television broadcasting/video production, and has experience in news writing and social media outreach. Courtney was the class president of the 2012 graduating class, as well as an orientation leader, and enjoyed being the bridge between students and faculty among her other responsibilities. Courtney continues to provide alumni support to her alma mater through her position on Curry's Young Alumni Council. Her strong allegiance to Curry directly correlates to her commitment to the underlying foundation of the BEST program - a sense of family.
