Maria R. Marinucci
Maria Marinucci serves as the Director of the Cross Cultural Centers, a role she initially held on an Interim basis for the 2017-2018 academic year, and one she has held permanently since May 2018. Maria first joined the University of Scranton in June 2014 as the Assistant Director for Residence Education, overseeing Residential Learning Communities.
Maria very much enjoys connecting with students and helping them explore who they are, who they wish to become, and their place within the world, and tries to do so both individually and by offering students the opportunity to engage in praxis. Her overall goal is to promote inclusion and work for justice for all on campus and beyond. She deeply appreciates being able to dialogue with students and others in the community about feminisim, gender equity, advocacy, and inclusion, and consistently seeks ways to expand the Centers' outreach and work on campus.
