Mary Ellen Jukoski

President, Mitchell College

Mary Ellen Jukoski is President of Mitchell College in New London, Connecticut, which is celebrating its diamond jubilee anniversary and continues to be recognized as a national leader in learning engagement within a student-centered community that maximizes each student’s ability to succeed. Under President Jukoski’s leadership, the College offered its first baccalaureate program in the area of Human Development, and launched Thames Academy, an innovative one-year pre-college/ post-graduate certificate program. President Jukoski advocates that, to educate for success, a college must put more emphasis on student asset development rather than student deficit management—this means creating programs that identify and cultivate each individual student’s strengths. Located on a waterfront campus, Mitchell College's students come from more than twenty states and six foreign countries.
