As student services manager, Rachel Acosta manages the day-to-day functions of the student services office of the College of Information and Communications. She also serves as an academic advisor and counsels and advises undergraduate students pertaining to academic planning and progression, study abroad, engagement on campus, leadership opportunities and career pathways.


Acosta has been in and out of higher education over the last 10 years.  Previously, she worked at the University of Miami as an academic advisor in the Department of Psychology.

She is a language nerd who really does enjoy reading for fun. Acosta loves learning new things (which is why she watches the special features on any movie or TV show she buys) and is always either listening to a podcast or can recommend a great documentary to watch.

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
