The University of Rochester School of Nursing welcomed Elizabeth A. Bremer, ’12W (MS), ’14W (EdD) as its new director of student affairs on August 15.

The former director of assessment and research management at Rochester Institute of Technology’s Division of Diversity and Inclusion, Bremer brings more than a decade of student affairs experience and often jokes that she is a “perpetual student.” In addition to her previous roles in student support, she has also taught mathematics as an adjunct professor at RIT and Nazareth College.

“There are so many aspects of the college and university environment to explore,” Bremer says. “I’m excited to have the experience of working with individuals in health care, and to support them in their training and education to be so pivotal in our society.” 

Bremer looks forward to leading the School of Nursing’s student affairs team as it expands and seeks new ways to support students.

“One of things that was most attractive to me about this position was having an opportunity to connect with students in a direct way,” Bremer says. “Student Affairs is blossoming, branching out, and establishing a presence.”

Though she is new to the School of Nursing, Bremer is a two-time University of Rochester alumna. She earned her master’s in higher education administration here in 2012, and a doctoral degree in educational leadership in 2014. A self-proclaimed math geek, Bremer holds a Bachelor of Arts in mathematics at Nazareth College, and a master’s in applied financial mathematics from the University of Connecticut.

Outside of work, Bremer is a devoted Buffalo Bills fan with season tickets – a bright red frame with game-day photos on her desk might give that away – and is a proud pet parent to a dog and two cats. Bremer loves to travel and hopes to visit Greece, Thailand, and Latvia sometime soon.

Bremer is excited to connect with UR Nursing students, and to assist them in their efforts to build community and foster a sense of belonging.

Assistant Professor of Clinical Nursing Robin L. Stacy, DNP, FNP-C, who served as the interim director of student affairs, will continue in her previous role as faculty liaison for Student Affairs and Admissions.
