Marylu McEwen is a prominent scholar in student development theory, working specifically in theories of student development for students of color. She also focuses on multiculturalism in student affairs and higher education. These research and teaching foci developed from an early emphasis on women’s issues and development in graduate school that later expanded to focus more broadly on diversity, multiculturalism and social justice. McEwen is currently an Associate Professor Emerita in the College of Education at the University of Maryland at College Park where she spent twenty-one years in the Department of Counseling and Personnel Services. Prior to her tenure at the University of Maryland, McEwen was a member of the faculty at Auburn University in the Counselor Education Program for twelve years. McEwen earned both her Bachelor of Science (mathematics) and her doctorate (Counseling and Personnel Services) from Purdue University, in addition to her M.S.Ed. from Indiana University (College Student Personnel Administration). While finishing her PhD, McEwen worked as an intern in the Office of the Dean of Women at Purdue. Upon receiving her doctorate in 1972, McEwen completed a two year term as the Assistant Dean of Women there. In addition to many publications and presentations over the course of her career, McEwen has placed an emphasis on the importance of mentorship and guidance of her students. She has also remained highly active in her field by maintaining membership in numerous professional organizations and honor societies, as well as accepting leadership positions in service to the university and professional associations.
