Stephanie Povlosky, Ph.D, is the newest addition to the Cabrini business department. acting as the new assistant professor of business administration, Povlosky has only been at Cabrini for a little over one month, but she already fits right in.
A native to the area, Povlosky grew up in New Jersey. She graduated from Eastern University, where she earned her doctoral degree in organizational leadership with a concentration in non-profit management and has lived in Pennsylvania for the past six years.
She moved to Ohio for one short year, than decided to come back to live in Pennsylvania. On Aug. 15, Povlosky started her journey at Cabrini and has loved every minute of it.
“I came to Cabrini because of its mission program,” Povlosky said. she also liked the small school feel of Cabrini, which resembles Eastern in many ways. She previously taught at a larger school called Malone University in Canton, Ohio, before she moved back to Pennsylvania to start her job at Cabrini.
Povlosky teaches accounting and finance classes and she loves what she does.
“Having worked in finance and accounting roles for much of my work tenure, I was tasked with teaching colleagues of mine on subject matter that was quite challenging for them,” Povlosky said.
“I became passionate about finding the most effective ways to stimulate and sustain intellectual and personal development and wanted to expand my reach to students who would be entering the business field, to help support the journey they are making between the academic and professional world.” Outside of class, Povlosky is often meeting with students, grading and doing typical teacher tasks.
“I teach mainly finance and accounting right now,” Povlosky said. “Some of those topics aren’t the most popular or exciting for students, so I really try to help out a lot and be very accessible for the students.”
Not only does Povlosky teach, but she has already started to develop a club at Cabrini within less than two months of being here. She is currently starting the finance club.
“The finance club expands the horizons of those interested in finance by providing students with financial information and opportunities in the finance world, with a strong focus on ethical and responsible fi nancial practices,” Povlosky said. “The club also provides students with networking opportunities and real world exposure.”
“Because of the nature of the club, the number of students involved tends to be under 10,” Povlosky said. To get involved, students can contact senior William Uditsky or Povlosky herself.
“I have also worked with SIFE in the past and with some other business clubs as well.”
Povlosky is passionate about her job, finance and her students’ paths to success.
“Being a part of a student’s college journey is my favorite part of being a college professor,” Povlosky said. “I remember being away from home for the fi rst time, as an undergraduate and those professors that helped guide and shape my future. I am excited to be a part of the next generation of students, as they embark on their journeys.”
