Nadine Shardlow, a first-in-family college completer, has been involved in higher education beginning in 1987 assisting students identified as “at-risk”.
She has been the director of the Alfred University Arthur O. Eve Opportunity Programs since July of 2000 and was promoted to Executive Director of H/EOP and the newly formed Center for Advising in 2018. Teaching our younger generation lifelong learning skills has been her passion and is what makes her get out of bed each and every single day.
Shardlow grew up in Niskayuna, NY, and attended Alfred University earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in Clinical Counseling and an MSEd in College Student Development. Shardlow has made Alfred her home since 1982 and she and her husband Mark, have three children – Justin, Eva, and Erica – and four grandchildren. Nadine’s philosophy is that “it takes a village to raise a child” and that is how she leads the areas she is responsible for at Alfred University. “It’s all about teamwork and communication!”
