Mary Zinser


 I am committed to student success at Wayne State University and working with the College of Engineering to promote, retain and graduate our students while ensuring they are ready to have meaningful careers in their chosen industry. 

Previous to my current role, I was the Assistant Director for the Hessler Student Success Center at the Mike Ilitch School of Business. I managed the orientation for first year and transfer students along with the daily workflow of the other advisors in the office. Before being promoted to Assistant Director, I was an Academic Advisor II advising all business students, but specializing in accounting and finance. 

I started at Wayne State in the Office of International Students and Scholars as an 1-20 processor assisting international students as they started their Wayne State journey. 

Previous to joining Wayne State, I worked in the healthcare and IT industry, most notably with EDS servicing the GM/MIC account.
