Madeline Corona, MPA
Exploratory Curriculum Advisor
Tampa campus

Madeline Corona comes to USF from Salt Lake City, Utah where she spent the last 15 years assisting students in major and career exploration, and helping those in academic difficulty to navigate the higher education experience. She also worked closely with underrepresented students such as first generation, low income, students from diverse backgrounds, and students with disabilities. She believes all students deserve the same opportunity to reach not only their academic and educational goals but also their lifelong goals.

Madeline has a Bachelor of Science in Liberal Studies and Communications Media and a Master of Public Administration with Emphasis in Higher Education Administration from Southern Utah University. She also has some coursework done in Law from the Pontifical Catholic University of Puerto Rico, School of Law.

She loves musicals, theatre, movies, long walks in the great Florida weather, exploring nature, and eating at good restaurants.
