Rose McGinnis | mcginnr@temple.edu

Director of Student Professional Development & Data Science Programs

I have a diverse background with a blend of technology and human resource experience. Before coming to work for Temple, I worked in industry for over 20 years - I was the Product Manager for the Students System that you use! Some roles I've held include software developer, QA tester, software consultant, account manager, software trainer, business analysis, SAS implementation specialist, & ETL analyst - just to name a few. I also worked as VP for Worldwide Recruiting at Unisys, so I have sat on both sides of the hiring process!

Temple CS Alumni - Frank Freidman was one of my professors!
Temple Parent - My son graduated from FOX
Temple Faculty - Teach in the CIS Department
Temple Made!!!
What am I passionate about? The software development and implementation process, undergraduate research, improving diversity in technology, and getting students better prepared to enter the workforce!

Assistant Director

Prior to moving to Philadelphia, I completed my BA in Psychology and MA in Student Affairs in Higher Education outside of Pittsburgh, PA – yes, I’m a Pittsburgh Steelers fan! I have been working in higher education since 2014 and have developed a strong background in student development and coaching. I joined the Temple community in 2017 and am now a full time College of Science and Technology Career Coach working with students, faculty, and staff to ensure students succeed in transitioning from student to professional!

What am I passionate about?  Students! I believe that every student brings something cool to the table and together, we will get you where you’re destined to belong!
