Jordan McMican Joins Poole College with Vast Experience in Academic Advising

Jordan McMican has joined the Poole College of Management as a senior academic advisor working in the Office of Undergraduate Programs. She fills the vacancy left by Dr. Brian Peters and comes into the role from the NC State Division of Academic and Student Affairs to Poole College. 

McMican began her career in advising in 2011 when she worked at Shaw University in the Academic Success Center as an academic advisor and lecturer. After leaving her role at Shaw University, she served as an academic advisor for NC State’s Exploratory Studies program where she also worked internally as the coordinator for diversity and inclusion. Within her last year in Exploratory Studies, McMican coordinated the curriculum for USC 101 and USC 102, as well as supporting the Spring Connection Students Transition and served on the New Student Orientation Committee. 

As a senior academic advisor in Poole College, McMican will be responsible for advising students and teaching first-year students in the M100 course. She will also be working with students within the International Business Dual Degree program, which allows students to spend two years at NC State and two years abroad at an international partner institution. 

Prior to her academic advising career, McMican earned a bachelor of science in business administration from NC State in 2007. After her graduation, she worked in the NC State Undergraduate Admissions Office before earning her master of science in human development and family studies from the NC State College of Agriculture and Life Sciences in 2010.

Outside of Poole College, McMican enjoys traveling, spending time with family, and listening to 90s R&B music. She is interested in reading anything about money management and likes watching “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Designated Survivor,” and “Game of Thrones.” 

“The Advising Team in Poole is excited to welcome an advisor with the breadth and experience that Jordan brings to our team,” said Melusian Wright, assistant director of advising for the Office of Undergraduate Programs. “We are looking forward to the skills she possesses regarding working with programming and support for underrepresented students as well as international student populations. Her CliftonStrengths of ‘Strategic’ and ‘Futuristic’ will enhance our team and the resources we provide our students.”
