Bernadina Streeter coordinates UHCL’s new model of internships and experiential learning opportunities. This new model offers students the advantage of getting connected early in their academic career to their field of study. Our community partners work closely with our office to shape and prepare our students for their first professional jobs in their careers. Prior to her current role, Bernadina served as a Senior Academic Advisor for our very own College of Education, where she advised undergraduate and graduate students on the many degree plans and pathways for Pre-K through 12th grade. Prior to rejoining the University of Houston System, Streeter worked for San Jacinto College District for five years as an International Counselor and Educational Planner, where she provided academic advising and career counseling to International Students from over 50 countries. Bernadina earned a Bachelor of Arts in Radio/Television from University of Houston Main Campus and Master of Science in Counseling from University of Houston-Clear Lake.
Over the last year due to COVID19, she and fellow advising colleagues launched virtual advising. In 2020, virtual advising made history on our campus and was so well received by the students that it will be added to the repertoire of advising options to better serve students and meet their everyday needs and responsibilities.
"COVID19 crystalized what my students needed from me as an advisor. I was humbled
that many students shared their losses of jobs, cars, homes, and loved ones as the
year progressed. I was honored to act as their sounding board as they met their challenges
and worked through them."
