Wright Brings Passion to CPCE Post
April 3, 2015
“What I love about Wentworth is that the educational values of the institution line up perfectly with my own,” said Wright. “And, with a great team already there, I’m looking forward to collaborating on strategies for growth and expansion.”
Wright’s responsibilities include expanding CPCE’s programs locally, regionally, nationally and internationally; and collaborating on implementing Wentworth’s strategic initiatives.
She has more than 25 years of experience in the adult learning arena, and has worked in higher education, corporate training and business consulting. Most recently, she served as director of the Center for the Adult Learner at Lesley University.
Wright moved to Boston from Charlotte, N.C., where she was vice president for adult studies at Montreat College. There, she introduced new degree programs and satellite locations to better serve the adult population—leading the school to record growth.
At Lesley, Wright helped transition the adult program into the undergraduate college. Through faculty collaborations, she introduced new program opportunities and partnerships for adult students.
Wright holds an MBA from the University of Phoenix, Fountain Valley campus in Southern Calif., and a BFA from the California Institute of the Arts in Valencia, Calif.
The College of Professional and Continuing Education at Wentworth leads adult learners to achieve their educational and career objectives, with evening and weekend courses designed to fit busy lifestyles.
Learning from faculty who are industry leaders in their respective fields prepares students to enter a new field, advance a career, or manage their own business. CPCE offers multiple continuing education opportunities including associate, bachelor and master degree programs, professional and graduate certificate programs, and workforce training and development.
