Project Coordinator, Recruitment Marketing

About Samantha Schmidt

Sam writes and edits recruitment marketing communications including blog posts, student profiles, emails, event descriptions and website updates. One of her main goals as a writer is to bring out the student voice in university communications. To better understand policy writing and the student perspective, she recently completed the Writing Persuasive Public Policy Credential Program at Harris. 

Prior to joining Harris, Sam worked as a copywriter in both Advancement and Marketing at Governors State University (GSU), where she earned her bachelor's and master's degrees in English Language & Literature. During her graduate and undergraduate career, Sam worked as a Writing Fellow and research assistant for Governors State University- UI Cancer Center Disparity Education (GUIDE) project, where she saw the real-world impact writing can make. She is glad to continue making a difference through writing at Harris, where students are thinking through evidence-based solutions to the world's most pressing problems.
