Gena Dorris brings her skills and expertise to CCSA as our new Communication & Outreach Coordinator.

Gena Dorris

Gena joins CCSA with over 15 years of communications and outreach experience in the non-profit, entertainment and fashion industries. She is an innovative thinker who strives to make connections through creative storytelling and relatable messaging.

Gena received her MA in Advertising and Public Relations from Richmond American International University in London and brings her experience studying and living abroad to this role. Her own study abroad experience will be a tremendous asset to CCSA.

Gena will set about learning the CCSA story and developing our communication and outreach plan. She will also manage and grow our social media presence and collaborate with member institutions on student and faculty recruitment.

As Gena told us , in her free time, she “enjoys spending time with friends and family, traveling and reading. She also loves history, museums and art.”

She will work remotely from Memphis and we look forward to meeting her in-person at the 40th Anniversary event.
