Hi everyone! I’m Ajeenah Nuriddin-Little, the Manager of the Walker Center for Academic Excellence, and have worked for Peirce College’s student support services since 2004. The Walker Center is an on-campus resource for Peirce’s adult students.
We offer academic assistance through workshops, presentations, and one-on-one academic counseling. Every day I advise students on stress and time management, help them with scholarship applications, provide them with tutoring appointments, and supervise Peirce’s disability program.
In addition to my role at the Walker Center, I’m also the Director of the Carl D. Perkins Grant, which aims to strengthen the academic and technical skills of students in vocational majors. Students can also take advantage of the Honor Society, Chi Alpha Epsilon. I work closely with these students to sponsor cultural events to enrich the College’s diverse atmosphere. I also oversee a laptop borrowing program to ensure that each student has access to a computer.
I attended North Carolina Agricultural and State University where I earned my bachelor’s degree in psychology and master’s degree in human resource counseling. I’m now married with one daughter, an honorary member of Chi Alpha Epsilon (XAE), and a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Incorporated (AKA).
