Dara Norwood graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a B.A. in English and Cinema Studies. Following graduation she spent four years working in development at The Fresh Air Fund, a children’s non-profit. She then went on to Harvard Graduate School of Education, where she studied Higher Education administration. Her interests include access for low-income and underrepresented students, and the creation of college readiness programs. In addition, she is a big fan of the arts- specifically writing, musical theater, dance, and (probably too much) tv. Ms. Norwood currently is a Senior Assistant Director of Admissions for Yale College. She resides in New Haven, CT.
