Residence Hall Staff

Shawna Mott
Assistant Director of Residence Life

Originally from Oneonta, NY, I graduated with my undergraduate degree in Psychology from SUNY Oneonta. I completed my master's degree in Educational Administration and Policy Studies at University of Albany. Prior to working here, I worked at SUNY Oneonta.

This is my first year working at Morrisville State College.   I am the Area Coordinator of Mohawk Hall and I have been enjoying working so closely with the students and staff here.  The best part of my job is being proactive in helping students achieve success in all aspects of their lives while they are in college.  Building a positive report with students in the key to having a successful experience!  I enjoy playing volleyball and traveling in my free time.  My advice to students is to get involved!  This is the time to put yourself out there and meet new people.  Get as much as you can from your college experience, because it goes by fast.  Lastly, reflect on your experience here, and leave here knowing that you made a positive change in your own life!

This is my second year at Morrisville and I am the Residence Hall Director of West Hall. I am also excited to work with Morrisville's Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) and the Cambridge Education Group as a summer RD as well. 

Besides doing all of the job duties of a Residence Hall Director, I am also a club advisor for RAA (Resident Assistant Association), L.A.S.O. (Latin American Student Organization), and with the help of the Assistant Director of Student Activities and students we brought the 1st ever Relay for Life to Morrisville State College. We had 13 teams participate in our relay and raised approximately $6,000. I am looking forward to seeing this event progress and becoming an annual event here at Morrisville State College.

Prior to coming to Morrisville, I was a Resident Assistant for 4 years at the University of Hartford, and I have held numerous positions in the field of student affairs. I have experience in career services, academic advising, student center operations, and equity and diversity.

What excites me to work at Morrisville is the diverse student body and also the wide array of Bachelor and Associate degrees to choose from. I credit my Associate's degree for giving me the foundation to be where I am today. My advice to students is to find your niche on campus. College campuses have a lot to offer from student clubs, sports teams, on campus leadership positions, and collaborating with faculty and staff members. Find what makes you happy and flourish!
