Lycoming College is pleased to welcome Mallory Weymer as the new director of civic engagement and personal development. In her new position, Weymer will play a key role in the facilitation of meaningful community interactions for Lycoming students.

Her work at the Pennsylvania College of Technology (PCT) as coordinator of student health and wellness education/suicide prevention specialist allowed her to foster strong relationships within the Williamsport community while functioning within an academic setting. During her time at PCT, Weymer collaborated with academic programs to create service opportunities for students and spent three years executing the Federal Garrett Lee Smith Suicide Prevention Grant.

Prior to her professional experience, Weymer received a Bachelor of Science in graphic design from the Pennsylvania College of Technology and then went on to pursue a Master of Science in corporate and organizational communication from Northeastern University.

She is currently a member of the Board of Directors for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and the YWCA Northcentral Pennsylvania.

Featured in the Susquehanna Valley Connector as a “Woman of Williamsport,” Weymer’s experience brings a new dynamic to the Office of Civic Engagement and Personal Development.

“As a long-standing resident of Williamsport, it has been exciting to see the new and innovative ways that Lycoming College has expanded and become further embedded into the larger community,” said Weymer. “I’m looking forward to contributing to that growth by building upon existing partnerships, and developing new and meaningful learning experiences for the students and the greater Williamsport community.”

“The search committee was impressed with how Mallory embraced the College’s vision for civic engagement and in turn, was able to articulate a course of action to lead Lycoming in fulling a the vision of becoming a leader in civic engagement,” Daniel P. Miller, Ed.D., vice president for student life at Lycoming College, explains.
