Nakiya SchurmanNakiya Schurman, MSW ’06, is the associate director and academic advisor in the Office of Records and Registration at the School of Social Work (SSW). After earning her master’s degree in social work from SSW, she returned to her alma mater a few years later, first in the Office of Field Education and then Records and Registration.

For seven years, Schurman has directly interacted with students to help them achieve their goals while also working closely with the administration. She has seen the interest in online coursework grow exponentially as students’ desires for a more flexible program increased. To this end and stemming from her motivation to acquire knowledge that would be in the best interest of SSW, she is pursuing a master’s degree in education from University of Maryland Global Campus focusing on distance education and e-learning.

Schurman enjoys staying involved in the SSW and UMB community. She has been a member of the Emerging Leaders Program, UMB Staff Senate, and UMB Diversity Advisory Council. She remains involved as SSW’s liaison to UMB’s Lactation Committee and is on SSW’s Global, Social, Scholarship, and Enrollment Management committees. Most recently, she was elected to the Executive Board of the inaugural SSW Staff Council as secretary. 

Schurman is married and the mother of two boys. When she isn’t playing with her sons, she enjoys reading, trying out new Baltimore restaurants, and completing puzzles.
