Carla Anderson

The Assistant Director of the Ursinus Institute for Student Success coordinates the tutoring & academic coaching programs and works with upperclassmen students to provide academic counseling & support.


Carla joins Ursinus with over seven years of teaching experience and several years of experience in training & supervising student tutors at Temple University. She is looking forward to working directly with students to support them during their time at Ursinus!

Outside of school, Carla spends a lot of time reading, hiking (aka checking out every single rock, fungi, plant, bird, etc), and having one-sided conversations with her cat Athena.
