Welcome to Hunter College! My name is Valerie Hardt and I joined the Academic Advising team at Hunter College in May of 2018. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Loyola University in Maryland and my Master’s Degree in College Student Development and Counseling from Northeastern University in Boston. My past experience in Higher Education was centered in Residence Life where I was able to gain experience in a myriad of functional areas including advising, counseling, Student Activities, Diversity and Inclusion, and crisis response. I am incredibly excited to be taking on the role of creating a Sophomore Experience for the students at Hunter. My approach to advising is student focused and based in helping students create their best path forward. When outside of work, I enjoy media and film analysis, theatre, photography, dice-making, and all things fandom.
