Ms. Greer joined the Texas Wesleyan professional staff of the Academic Success Center in 2009 after interning for a year in Career Services. But her career at Texas Wesleyan didn’t begin with her internship. Before that Ms. Greer earned a bachelor’s in psychology and a master’s in psychology and professional counseling license.
In her years at Texas Wesleyan, Ms. Greer said the university has become “more committed to providing many more resources for students than just their instructor and advisor, adding support outside the classroom.” She said there are “more people looking out for the student, being proactive rather than reactive; watching out for the students and being an additional resource.”
Ms. Greer agrees with many staff and faculty members, as well as students, who say Texas Wesleyan offers a “unique personal experience.” That includes “professors who know your name and the open door policy” of most faculty members. “When I’m walking around campus” the atmosphere is “more like a family and close-knit” she says. “I know most of the students by first name.”
People are saying:
That Ms. Greer knows most students by first name is not surprising to her co-worker Melody Bell Fowler, director of student support programs and services, which includes the Academic Success Center. “Michael genuinely cares about our students,” Mrs. Bell Fowler said. “She wants to see them succeed academically and does everything within her power to help them.”

“I’m a licensed counselor and work with clients when I have time,” Ms. Greer said. “I’ve worked with a student at Weatherford College who has a severe mental disorder. But we’ve been able to keep him in school and he plans to transfer here.”
She also acknowledges, “I’m a football nut. But everyone knows that.”
