Sonia Di Maulo
Sonia Di Maulo has been Part-Time Faculty at Concordia since 2011 and now teaches in the Education, Applied Human Sciences, and Engineering and Computer Science departments. Sonia created, developed, and secured funding for “Take the Leap!” program in 2019. This is an award-winning program that grounds emerging leaders in purpose and prosperity, enabling participants to find clarity in ambiguity while gaining tools and skills to design a life to be lived with purpose.
As part of the Educational Technology program from 2012-2017, Sonia supported and guided groups of graduate students in Educational Technology to complete a 3-month intensive Case Study Competition. As a result of Sonia’s leadership and tutelage, Concordia teams won competitions in 2013, 2015, 2016 and 2017. She developed the idea and ran every aspect of the Case Study Competition. Sonia was also a vital member of the Concordia University Alumni Association (CUAA) from 2015 to 2020. During that time, she took an active role as VP Strategic Initiatives from 2017-2019, where she implemented a video-based onboarding program for new Board Members. Sonia has also volunteered her time to mentor and support any student who needed help and she has spoken at many Concordia-led events. She continues to support the CUAA with their annual Board Retreat meetings.
The combination of her ongoing work as a consultant, along with the above example of working with, and for, the community, demonstrates Sonia’s commitment and skill to not just graduate teaching, but changing people’s lives.
