Our Office

Elizabeth Cannon 

 she/her/hers                               Director               ecannon@vassar.edu

Before coming to Vassar College, I served as the Senior Associate Director of Civic House at the University of Pennsylvania. Among my responsibilities at Civic House, I facilitated social justice workshops around issues of identity, privilege, power, oppression, and responsible community engagement. I also worked to build long-term sustainable relationships with community organizations by centering and valuing their voices in the process. Prior to Penn, I served as an Associate Director of UCARE (the Ursinus Center for Advocacy, Responsibility and Engagement) at Ursinus College in Collegeville, PA helping to coordinate the Ursinus’ PA Scholars in Service Program and the Bonner Leader Program. I received my Ed.D. in Higher Education from Penn’s Graduate School of Education with research interests that focus on critical feminism within community engagement, the role of power dynamics between institutions and communities, and best practices for centering community voice. I’m excited about getting to learn alongside community partners, students, and faculty.

 Jean Hinkley

 she/her/hers                                                   Assistant Director                 jhinkley@vassar.edu

I grew up in Poughkeepsie and love our city! After going to Washington D.C. for a B.A. in History at American University, I attended Marist College’s campus in Florence, Italy for my M.A. in Museum Studies. A few of my favorite things are: exploring the Catskills, playing the cello, collecting vinyl records, and gallery hopping.

 

 Amanda Goodman

  she/her/hers                                          Office Specialist    agoodman@vassar.edu 

“One of these mornings…you’re goin’ to rise up singing…then you’ll spread your wings…and you’ll take the sky…” These lyrics from Billie Holiday’s Summertime have often inspired me to go after what I want. I’m a singer/songwriter who has performed throughout the Hudson Valley and at BB King’s in New York City. I earned my Bachelor’s at Marist College and was awarded the Baccalaureate Award for the Political Science department. I previously worked for a fashion buyer and a bank. In addition to being a music lover, I love baking, fashion, penguins, and black cats.
