For nearly 20 years, Nora Dowley-Liebowitz has dedicated her career to supporting students and their families through the college process. Ms. D-L first served as dean of college advising and alumni support at Codman Academy Charter Public School in Dorchester, Mass. In 2010 she earned the “Counselor Who Changes Lives Award” by the national nonprofit, Colleges That Change Lives, in recognition of her passion for creating access. Ms. D-L joined the Nobles community in 2013 as executive director of the Achieve program, an organization that supports motivated Boston Public School students from middle school through college. In 2020, she transitioned full-time to the Nobles College Counseling Office. At Nobles, Ms. D-L has also taught history and personal development. She earned her bachelor’s degree from Bowdoin College and a master’s degree from the Harvard Graduate School of Education. Outside of her time at Nobles, Nora is most often listening to Broadway music (she hosted a radio show dedicated to Broadway music in college) and watching college basketball (no team matters more to her than the Providence Friars).
