Jenna Dell, Associate Director, Higher Education Partnerships, Service Year Alliance
Jenna Dell, Ed.D., joined Service Year Alliance in December 2015 to oversee higher education partnerships. She works closely with institutions and associations to increase awareness of service year opportunities, link service years to academic credit, and encourage recognition of students’ previous service experience.
Prior to joining Service Year Alliance, Dell spent two years at The Washington Center for Internships and Academic Seminars overseeing civic engagement initiatives and community partnerships. She was introduced to national service as assistant director of civic engagement at the University of Rochester where she managed an AmeriCorps VISTA program and saw firsthand the impact that national service can have on both the individuals who serve and the communities. Her dissertation research went on to explore the impact year-long service experiences have on civic engagement.
