She comes to USciences from Thomas Jefferson University, where she worked for eight years, most recently as the assistant provost for institutional research.

At USciences, Dr. Giordano will be involved in internal and external institutional reporting, assessment of student learning outcomes, student satisfaction and other key metrics.

Dr. Giordano will serve on the Provost’s Council.
Dr. Giordano has been the primary author or co-author on over a dozen articles in peer-reviewed journals, mainly in the area of interprofessional education, and last year was named a fellow in the Association of Schools of Allied Health Professions. She has also previously been awarded the distinguished paper award from the Association of Schools of Allied Health Professions and has been awarded the James B.

Dr. Giordano received a bachelor’s degree in psychology, with a minor in women’s studies, from Rowan University where in 2015 she was named “Outstanding Alumni.” She earned her master’s degree in experimental psychology at Towson University and her doctorate in educational psychology at Temple University.
