KEYNOTE SPEAKER - Dr. Ophelie Rowe-Allen


Dr. Ophelie Rowe-Allen is the Associate Dean/Director of Residence Life & Student Diversity and Multicultural Affairs at Fairfield University.  She has been in the Office of Residence Life for over eleven years. She earned a Bachelors in Psychology and Masters in Mental Health Counseling at St. Thomas University in Miami Florida and a Doctorate of Education from Argosy University in Counselor Education and Supervision. As the Director of Residence Life, she designed the Residential Education Curriculum to focus on student formation starting from the first year to the senior year. Also, she oversees the First Year Living and Learning Program and the Sophomore Residential College program that is now in its sixteen years at Fairfield University. This program has brought together the concept of living and learning in a manner unique to the Fairfield University experience.

As the Director for Student Affairs and Multicultural Programming (SDMA), Dr. Rowe-Allen has re-imagined the office space in SDMA to promote intentional community amongst students of all identities. In her capacity, she supported inclusive excellence by focusing on the mission of Fairfield University.  Most importantly, she works closely with campus partners in Academic and Student Affairs to be equity minded practitioners by engaging in difficult dialogue and decision making that can lead to transformational change for underrepresented students. She is one of the trainers for the Student CARE Team (Community Advocates and Resource Educators). The CARE team facilitates weekly dialogue to create additional opportunities for students to develop an openness for cultural expression, gain an understanding of equity, diversity, and inclusion when interacting with others from different background and worldviews

Her additional administrative responsibilities include co-chair of the Martin Luther King Committee, serving on the Diversity Leadership Team and Mission Leadership Council, the first year living and learning initiatives committee, the retention committee, and chairing the Bias Education and Resource Team. She is also the Fairfield University representative for the Connecticut ACE Women’s Network and has been co-chairing the ACE Women Network Monthly Luncheon at Fairfield University for over four years. Also, she started the monthly staff and faculty of the color group at Fairfield University. Finally, in 2016, she was the staff Vision Award winner for demonstrating a commitment to the ideals and values of Dr. Martin Luther King.
