Moravian Names Assistant Dean for Continuing and Graduate Studies

(Bethlehem, Pennsylvania) – Moravian College has named Vivian Davis-Martinez as assistant dean for the Division of Continuing and Graduate Studies. Davis-Martinez was previously employed as the director of client services for the Allentown Rescue Mission, an organization she has been with for the past five years.

“Her very strong administrative and management skills have given the Rescue Mission a record of outstanding state and county licensing outcomes,” said Dr. Florence Kimball, dean of the Division of Continuing and Graduate Studies. “Vivian brings a variety of strengths and experiences to advance the goals of the CGS division. Her administrative and management experience is complemented by her skills as a counselor and teacher.” Kimball continued.

Davis-Martinez is an adjunct member of the Moravian Theological Seminary faculty where she has taught courses in addiction and pastoral counseling, professional ethics and counseling, and marriage and family systems.

Davis-Martinez received her BA in social work, summa cum laude, from Muhlenberg College and a Master of Social Work from the University of Pennsylvania. “As an adult student and graduate of Muhlenberg’s Wescoe School, Vivian understands, first-hand, the challenges that students face as they seek to balance the requirements of a rigorous academic program with the demands of work and family.” Kimball said. “She also has the distinction of having received Muhlenberg’s first Latino educational scholarship.”

Moravian College is a private, coeducational, selective liberal arts college located in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Tracing its founding to 1742, it is recognized as America's sixth-oldest college. Visit the Web site at http://www.moravian.edu.
