Getting to Know Coreen Bukowski

BUK grads x3The College of Education is excited to continue allowing students to better know its faculty and staff. Ms. Coreen Bukowski is the Academic Coordinator for the Department of Counselor Education & Counseling Psychology (CECP) here at the College of Education. We interviewed Ms. Bukowski so that our students can learn more about her!

Where did you grow up? How long have you lived in Milwaukee?

I was born and raised in Brookfield, Wisconsin, and now reside in South Milwaukee with my husband (Joe) and two sons (Joey and John).  Since I began my employment with Marquette University in 1987, I’ve been providing service to others.  Specifically, in my first position at Marquette I was a Representative in the Student Loan Accounts Office.  In 1993, I changed careers from business to academia within the College of Education as a Program Coordinator in the Hartman Center.  In 2007, I was given the opportunity to be an Academic Coordinator in the Department of Counselor Education and Counseling Psychology (CECP).  Academia is exciting to me because I not only watch students grow, but I learn from them as well.  Furthermore, I am a 2000 Marquette University graduate, having earned a Bachelor’s in Arts and Sciences, and an avid Marquette basketball fan.

It sounds like you really enjoy your time here at MU! What inspires your work?

In my job I work with a diverse group of people and perform a variety of duties.  The best part of my job is working with current students, prospective students, student workers, and Marquette alumni.  My work is satisfying because I help those who are working towards helping others (as counselors, psychologist, etc.)!

What do you see as an exciting opportunity for this upcoming academic year?

In the CECP department, I am looking forward to an upcoming expansion of a new Master of Science specialization in Clinical Rehabilitation Counseling (starting fall 2019).  We believe this will bring in more students, as well as new staff and faculty to the department.  Not only is this an exciting opportunity for the department but the community as well!

So what activities to you do when you are outside of the office?

 

In my time away from the department, I enjoy spending time with my family, friends, church and community activities.  In my time away from Milwaukee, I enjoy going to Marco Island, Florida for relaxing and Crivitz, Wisconsin, where I go hiking, fishing, and discovering the Northwoods.  I’ve been married to Joe since 1991 and we are very proud of our sons who are both MU undergraduates.  Furthermore, John graduated in May 2017 from Marquette’s physician assistant program and Joey will be graduating from Marquette’s Law School in May 2018.  If I am asked what my greatest blessings are, I say they call me “Mom.”
