Piper Spotlight: M. Shernell Smith
Carnegie Mellon’s student newspaper, The Piper, recently interviewed ETIM’s Student Affairs liason, Shernell Smith.
She explains the importance of her position at Carnegie Mellon, explaining that “Inclusion and advocacy is not just an important part of my work in Student Affairs but it is an important part of my work in Staff Council as well.”
In her spare time, Smith serves on the board of the Thomas Merton Center and works with the Urban League of Pittsburgh, the Greater Pittsburgh Higher Education Diversity Consortium and Pennsylvania Women Work, a nonprofit dedicated to empowering women. “I’m able to bring the CMU experience into the Pittsburgh community and the Pittsburgh community into the CMU experience,” Smith said.
