Janet Mallen

Assistant Director of Academic Resources: Student Success

Memorial 327

Janet Mallen (she/her/hers or they/them/theirs) says: "Hi! I am a Southern California native, and have lived in many places: all along the California Central Coast; Okinawa Japan; Portland, Oregon; and, most recently, Oxford, Ohio. Now, I am back in Walla Walla after a 5 year hiatus to join the team in the ARC. My main goal is to help Whitties thrive academically and to help remove any barriers to success. I bring experience with teaching, advising, work as a registrar, community building, and a passion for helping students tap into and grow their strengths. My ever-expanding education includes an AA from San Diego Mesa College, a BA in English from the University of California, Santa Barbara, and a MS in Student Affairs in Higher Education from Miami University. I am a US Marine Corps veteran, and a proud parent. I love drinking good coffee, hiking, hanging out with friends, and traveling-I have wandered widely, and have more to see. I love learning!"
