Mark joins Arcadia University after nearly three decades of work and leadership at The Philadelphia Center helping students gain the most from internship experiences - academically, professionally, and personally -  as well as teaching, advising, and mentoring students from all over the country who studied in Philadelphia for a semester or a summer.

As academic director of Intern Philly, Mark will oversee the internship placement process, teach both Arcadia’s internship cornerstone course (Work and Thought in Action) and Gender, Power and Influence, and help to quickly establish Intern Philly as an innovative and supportive program for students seeking opportunities a little bit closer to home.

Mark is eager to kick-off the first summer program of Intern Philly, which is being delivered in virtually. He says: “I’m very excited to be part of the team here at Arcadia and looking forward to this next step in bringing rigorous and creative courses and placements to students from across the U.S.”

Mark earned his bachelor’s degree in Secondary English Education and his master’s in English from Temple University. His Ph.D. in Education in the Program of Writing is from the College of Arts and Sciences, Graduate School of Education, University of Pennsylvania.
