Meet Carol, Our Director of Student Success

In my role as the director of student success for the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, I aspire to be a trustworthy companion to you. If you have a conundrum, a quandary, or simply a story to tell, zap me an email or give me a jingle.


If you are a student within the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (review our programs) and you'd like to explore the possibility of securing resources from the college's limited hardship funds, please email Carol Gabrielli at cg@pdx.eduIn your email, include your full name, major/minor, phone number, PSU ID, and a succinct summary of the circumstances that prompt your inquiry.

Carol will arrange a 30-minute phone meeting to explore possibilities. If schedules allow, meetings usually are confirmed within 24-72 hours after your email is received. Please note that, if awarded, all hardship funds of any amount are taxable.
