Mickey Fitch (pronouns: she, her, hers) serves as the Assistant Director of the Educational Success Center, Director of Student Support Services, and Coordinator for Disability Support Services through the Disability Support Services. Prior to this role, Mickey served briefly as the Interim Coordinator for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion for Gender and Sexuality Programs through the Gender Equity Resource Centerr. This was a historical time for UW-Superior, as this was the first time there has been a dedicated full-time professional supporting gender and sexuality programming for students on campus.

Prior to returning to UW-Superior, Mickey worked remotely as a Program Manager in Student Affair and Academic Affairs for Academic Impressions based out of Denver, Colorado. Mickey also worked across the bridge as the Director of Residence Life at The College of St. Scholastica. From 2010-2014, Mickey was part of the UW-Superior community as the Assistant Director of Residence Life. Prior to moving “up north”, Mickey worked for one of the smaller University of Maine campuses in student life, as well as in residence life at Minnesota State University, Mankato.
Mickey is not only a staff member, but also a full-time student. Mickey is pursuing her PhD in Leadership in Higher Education through Northcentral University, with an anticipated “Dr. Fitch” date of December 2019 (fingers crossed!). Mickey holds her Master’s in Counseling and Student Personnel with a focus in College Student Affairs from Minnesota State University, Mankato earned in 2005, and a Bachelor’s in Psychology in 2003 from University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point.
Beyond her work and education life, Mickey enjoys serving as an academic editor for several editing agencies, national academic journal boards, and also serves on the Board of Directors for Superior Public Library.
