Online Student Support

The dynamic student support team in the Online Programs Office is students’ direct connection to assistance on all aspects of their graduate experience.

Sophonie Bazile and Trisha Townsend are the Coordinators of Online Student Support and Community, and they are here to support students when external factors begin to impede their academic performance, such as helping them implement time management strategies when their work schedule becomes hectic or helping them acclimate to an online learning environment. They can also inform and connect students to campus-wide and College of Business resources, student organizations, alumni opportunities, and more. Additionally, students will hear from Sophonie and Trisha when there are important programmatic updates to be announced, when it is time to elect the cohort president and vice president, and about virtual and in-person events across campus, among other updates.

Reach out to Sophonie at 502.852.4820 or, or connect with Trisha at 502.852.9232 or with any questions.
