Faith Phillips is director of financial aid services for OSU-N, COTC

NEWARK ― She thought she’d go one direction, then changed course in college.

“I had a good childhood,” remembered Faith Phillips, “growing up in a small town in the 70s and 80s when life was a little easier. I thought I would be a teacher when I grew up because I liked babysitting and working with children. And honestly, in a small town, I didn’t really experience many other professions. However, while I love working with children, I knew I was not destined to be a teacher. I had no idea at the time I would find a career in higher education as a financial aid director.”

Today, Phillips is director of student financial services at COTC and OSU Newark.

“I oversee financial aid and student billing,” she explained. “We work to ensure that finances are an understandable and manageable for students at COTC and OSU Newark, not a barrier.”
