                         Welcome message from Student Service Counselor
Dear SHRP Faculty/Staff,

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself as the new Student Service Counselor/ Disability Coordinator
for SHRP. I look forward to working with every one to ensure that our students receive the academic support services
they need to be successful in their programs.
The Office of Student Services (OSS) is committed to providing equal educational access for individuals with disabilities
in accordance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments
(ADAA). I will assist our students with services that are allowed under these provisions.
In efforts to ensure compliance with the University’s Office of Workplace Diversity and the ADAA, all requests for aca-
demic accommodations for SHRP students must be submitted to the SHRP Disability Coordinator in person or via our
on-line request form http://shrp.umdnj.edu/current_students/shrp_oss_ada.html. My office hours are Monday-Friday
9:00am-5:00pm. I will be establishing hours on the Scotch Plains campus and is exploring the option of travelling to
Stratford to provide student assistance.

For more information on general services offered through our office, please visit our website at: http://shrp.umdnj.edu/
current_students/shrp_oss_home.html. If you have any questions regarding student services, please contact me at 973-
972-8594 or guillaaf@umdnj.edu.

Sincerely,
Ashanté Guillaume-Salvant, M.S.

                                continued initiative, creativity and generosity in building the Ellen C. Ross Memorial
         News                   Scholarship endowment. This endowment was started in 2007 as a tribute to the late
                                Ellen Ross, a beloved faculty member, to support a Ph.D. student in the Department.
       from the                 To date, the Ross Scholarship endowment has received more than $138,000 in contribu-
                                tions, including gifts, faculty honoraria and proceeds from the Department’s continuing
     Foundation of              education programs. The first distribution from the Ross Scholarship endowment will be

five years. If you would like to learn more about endowments at UMDNJ, please call me at 908-731-6594 or email at

                                            Letter from an alumni…
Letter from Cynthia Dixey

Changing careers and returning to school full time in my late twenties was not a straightforward decision. In 2001, after
I served six years in the Navy as a Sonar Technician, I continued to pursue a job as well as a degree in electronics. I still
remember my first night in boot camp. Sometime after midnight I turned my face toward the bitterly cold star-lit sky
and turned eighteen into adulthood. In 2003, I married my best friend and biggest fan David. So in 2007 after working
over ten years for various Department of Defense contractors as an electronics engineering technician, I told David that I
would rather have the uncertainty that comes with starting over rather than the certainty that I would one day touch the
ceiling of my limits. While I was at Ramapo College of New Jersey from 2007 to 2010 for Clinical Laboratory Science, I
was able to balance work and go to school. However, before starting at UMDNJ in the Medical Laboratory Science pro-
gram in the summer of 2010, I left my job to focus on my future.

In the past I have been asked “What do you plan on doing with your Medical Laboratory Science degree?” This question
suggested that my degree was inferior to other degrees and I never knew, or even wanted to answer such a question. Re-
cently I came across a quote by Mark Twain I wish I had seen years ago: “Keep away from people who try to belittle your
ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.” I surround
myself with positive people, who accept me for who I am, and if I fall on my face they will help me to my feet and brush
me off. I think everyone has something to offer, and you have a choice whether you want to take those pieces of experi-
ence with you or leave them behind.

I often find myself thinking of solutions to solve other people’s problems. This will not be much different than what I will
be doing after I graduate in a few months. After I get my feet wet in the clinical laboratory, I see myself moving into re-
search, forensics, molecular diagnostics, or some odd fusion of the three. Even though most people are unaware of what
Medical Laboratory Scientists do, I know my work will contribute to the diagnosis and treatment of many people. When
I look in the mirror I see my years reflecting back without any regret. Even with my military medals, professional
awards, and honors, I could not have done it without some help (and patience) along the way.
