Join us in welcoming, Jillian Abel, to the JPHigherEd family! Jillian will be serving as an intern with JPHigherEd for the summer and we couldn’t be more excited to have her on the team! Jillian is joining us from Virginia Commonwealth University.
Jillian will be with JPHigherEd from May to July and will be responsible for multiple projects. Jillian will moderate a new series, “Office Hours,” which will be a free online gathering for higher education professionals to come together during the summer and discuss various topics. In addition, Jillian is going to be planning and implementing a new program (more details to come)!

“My name is Jillian Abel and I am entering my senior year at Virginia Commonwealth University. Over my college career I have developed a passion for inclusion, diversity, and social justice. I am currently serving as Vice President for a student run organization known as “SAVES” which stands for Students Advocating Violence Education and Support. Through this club I have been able to gain the skills necessary to be an active bystander, provide emotional support to victims of any type of violence, and create campaigns to make a difference on campus. I am a people person who is eager to make a difference and start a new conversation and outlook on inclusion and diversity! I can’t wait to be a part of the JPHigherEd family.”
