39: Dean Melanie Osborn (McKelvey School of Engineering)

On this episode, we visit with Senior Assistant Dean in the McKelvey School of Engineering Melanie Osborn who talks about advising students in Engineering and also advises Beyond Boundaries Program students with an interest in that area. We talk about her upbringing as the daughter of educators in a small Missouri town, her many advisory roles at WashU over a period of 23 years including in the College of Arts & Sciences, her desire to know as much as she can about her advisees including pet names, and the wisdom she has been able to impart to so many over a long period of time. We are joined by her two big rescue dogs Hugo and Remi and we find out how one “chose” the other. Tune in and listen!
