Amanda Huggon-Mauretti, M.S.

assistant director

Phone: 508-565-1409

Mrs. Huggon-Mauretti joined the Office of Intercultural Affairs in December 2014 after serving more than a decade at Massasoit Community College in areas of admission and enrollment, student services, and academic success. Mrs. Huggon-Mauretti earned her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth and her Masters Degree in Organizational Management and Leadership from Springfield College School of Human Services. Mrs. Huggon-Mauretti is a practitioner who has dedicated her professional career to students, access, equity, and justice. She has served locally with Brockton's Promise and serves as a member of the National Coalition Building Institute (NCBI) Campus team. Her presentations with outside organizations have focused on issues of college access; addressing stereotypes and biases; reflective practice; ethical leadership; and building post-secondary partnerships.

Because of the depth and breadth of her experience in higher education, Mrs. Huggon-Mauretti contributes to the Stonehill community by creating, developing and sustaining partnerships both here at Stonehill and with the local community. She has expertise in team building, training and workshop development (particularly around financial aid and access), and student development. Mrs. Huggon-Mauretti also fills a unique need in that she has extensive experience working with students who are returning-to-college, transfer students, and students for whom college did not follow traditional trajectory. 

Mrs. Huggon-Mauretti's responsibilities at Stonehill include supporting and empowering students at Stonehill who are interested in and involved in diversity and inclusion; serving on the First Year Experience Committee; facilitating the R.A.C.E. Dialogue Group; organizing the Conference on Diversity and Inclusion; supporting students through academic advising; and working with the SGA Diversity Committee on the campus-wide educational event, DiverCity.

Mrs. McGovern is an avid painter, dog lover, mom, wife, and grandmother of two active boys!
