As Senior Co-op Coordinator and Faculty member, Jean Egan has delivered outstanding service to the SCCJ students, faculty, staff, and alumni of our program for more than 40 years. She is adored by our undergraduate students who consistently state that Jean is a highly-influential early career mentor.
Jean is a tireless problem-solver who developed SCCJ’s co-op integration course that distills the lessons learned during their employment experiences, and considers how these lessons shape their career choices in the future. This course is considered a CSSH model for how students can achieve the most value from their co-op experiences. Jean’s strong knowledge base and close connections to students and employers have been absolutely essential to our program. Her leadership in this area and enthusiasm for making innovative pedagogical changes that benefit the skillsets of our students has been inspiring. It is not surprising that Jean has served with distinction on multiple university-wide committees in this area and is a Past President of the National Cooperative Education and Internship Association.
Given her life-long investments in our student population, it is hardly surprising that Jean is the person that a majority of our alumni mention when asked about the most valuable aspects of their Northeastern education. She is truly an exceptional ambassador for our School and university.
