Director of FSI and Associate Dean of the College and Director of Programs for Access and Inclusion
Dean Gonzalez recently served as Associate Director for Princeton's Writing Center and has been closely involved in the development and implementation of the "Ways of Knowing" curriculum for FSI and other related initiatives. She joined the Writing Program in 2012 as a postdoctoral lecturer after working in the Brown University Writing Center as a staff associate and assistant director, where she also gained considerable experience working in the areas of diversity and inclusion, particularly through her work in the "Excellence at Brown" summer scholars program. As an undergraduate at Dartmouth College she was herself a Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellow, and has since continued to be involved in that organization as a mentor, advisor, and now currently serves as the campus coordinator for the Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellowship at Princeton. Dean Gonzalez holds a Ph.D. in English from Brown University and her own academic research focuses on 19th-century English literature and culture, especially the history of social reform programs. She is eager to welcome the new Scholars to campus.
Christy Siress is in her sixth year at Princeton University. She came to Princeton from Cazenovia College (a small college outside Syracuse, NY) where she worked in the admissions office for several years. She grew up near Princeton and is happy to be back in the area and away from all the snow. In her time away from the office, she loves to travel the world, meet new people, hang out with family and friends, and play with her two basset hounds. She looks forward to welcoming the new class of FSI students.
