Maura Devlin has been working in support of adult women's education since she joined Bay Path in 2006. Her initial role at the University was as a Resource Advisor, a part-time grant-funded position.
She held that position until 2009 when she became Director of Student Services in the One Day A Week College Saturday Program. When The American Women's College was formed in August 2013, Maura moved to Springfield and continued as Director.
While enrolled in a doctoral program in Higher Education at UMass, she transitioned from student affairs to academic affairs as the Director of Liberal Studies in 2014.
Maura completed her PhD in Education in April 2016 with a dissertation entitled, "When Mom Goes to School: Maternal Education and Intergenerational Mobility". Her dissertation topic is inspired by Bay Path's adult women students, and it is dedicated to the 3.4 million college student mothers in the US.
