Academic Advisor Raziya Chapman Retiring after 32 Years

Well known to many undergraduate students through the years, academic advisor Raziya Chapman is retiring on June 1 after 32 years of service to Georgia Tech College of Management.

Chapman, a native of Philadelphia who started out in the College as a faculty secretary, held several different administrative positions here (including executive secretary to the dean) becoming an academic advisor in 1998.

"Of all the jobs I've had here, being an academic advisor was the most rewarding and satisfying," she says.

"Georgia Tech students are so bright. I loved working with them, helping them navigate from their freshman year to graduation. I got to know some better than others because they came in more frequently for help. Some reminded me of myself at that age.”

Charles Parsons, associate dean of the Undergraduate Program, says, "Raziya has been a dependable contributor to the College for as long as I have been here. Her many years of service in many different roles are an inspiration."

After retiring, Chapman plans to travel, spend more time with her grandchildren, and perhaps work supporting the local arts community.
