Trina McCarty is a Program Coordinator at Kansas State University Global Campus. Trina actually worked at Global Campus (formerly DCE) as an undergraduate student from 1987-90, and as a classified employee from 1990-92. From 1992-2000, she was employed by Kansas Agriculture and Rural Leadership (KARL), Inc. and the Huck Boyd National Institute for Rural Development. Then in January 2001, she returned to Global Campus as a Program Assistant, assisting the College of Business Administration and the College of Human Ecology Program Coordinators.
In 2003, the Program Coordinator position for the College of Arts and Sciences opened and Trina was able to step into that position. Her duties include the coordination of distance courses offered through the College of Arts and Sciences as well as several programs. The master's degree in Psychology with an emphasis in Industrial and Organizational Psychology (MIOP) program is a hybrid program with online instruction as well as two-week summer sessions. Trina has worked with this program since its third year of existence. Trina also coordinates three graduate certificate programs, two undergraduate certificate program, and three minors.
Trina has received two bachelor's degrees from K-State, the first in General Business in 1990 and then a second degree in Management Information Systems in 2011. She returned to school for the MIS degree because of her love of technology, but now more clearly understands the challenges for a non- traditional student working full-time with a family. She is currently back to her studies again working on her masters in curriculum instruction with a specialization in educational technology. Trina has been married to her husband, Mike, since 1990, and has two children, Brian and Shannon. Besides her professional interests in distance learning and technology, her favorite hobby is music.
