Amber Shipley

Assistant Director

Amber is serving on the WVU Office of Student Conduct team for the third time. Her first experience with this office was as an Intern for the fall 2014 semester. Then, she came back on board as the Interim Assistant Dean for Student Conduct from March 2015 to November 2015. She is excited to now be serving as an Assistant Director for Student Conduct and making the transition from her legal career to a new path in higher education.


In this position, Amber supports the mission of the office through adjudicating instances of student misconduct, as well as in providing educational opportunities for all students who come through the process.  She is also the Office of Student Conduct’s representative on the area SART (Sexual Assault Response Team).   

Amber received her Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Bucknell University in 2006.  From there, she attended law school and received her Juris Doctorate degree from the University of Pittsburgh School of Law in 2009.

While practicing law, Amber realized that her heart was not in her work and began to research other avenues for her career.  She came across the Master's program for Higher Education Administration here at WVU and knew she found where her heart was leading her.  She began the program in the Fall of 2013 and graduated wither her Master of Arts in Higher Education Administration in December of 2014.

Amber has a passion for student conduct and sees great potential for her legal background and her desire to work in higher education to be utilized in this office.  She is hoping to hone her alternative dispute resolution skills and be able to offer the WVU community another avenue of conflict resolution.
