Taylor Clark is responsible for developing on-campus programs to build engagement and deeper loyalty to Ursinus College. She plans, coordinates and executes programming related to Alumni Weekend, Homecoming/Family Weekend and Hall of Fame for Athletes as well as supporting a number of annual advancement academic and athletic events.
Prior to coming to Ursinus, Taylor has worked in University Admissions for six years, beginning at her alma mater, Converse College in Spartanburg, South Carolina, and more recently at Susquehanna University in Selinsgrove, Pennsylvania.
Taylor considers herself very much a “Carolina girl,” having grown up in Durham, North Carolina, and is a proud graduate of the Southern tradition of a women’s college. She earned her Bachelor of Music degree in Vocal Performance in 2012 from Converse College’s Petrie School of Music. Among many other roles, Taylor has performed in two separate full opera productions in Rome and sung Handel’s Messiah with the North Carolina Symphony.
Taylor and her husband, Robert, a chemist at Merck and originally from Georgia, are still learning their way around the greater Philadelphia area. They enjoy running in races up and down the East coast — Taylor prefers the half-marathon distance — including the Disney Princess half in Orlando, the Kiawah Island half, and the Gettysburg Blue-Gray Half (where, naturally, they participated on the Gray side of that friendly competition).
In her spare time, Taylor enjoys volunteering with the Girls on the Run organization.
