Lorenzo Gamboa

Director of Diversity, Inclusion and Outreach

Lorenzo is originally from a very small town with eight graduating seniors in his public high school class. Coming from a close-knit community, he is familiar with the assumptions and fears one may have when considering leaving town for college. Reflecting on his own journey of college, he aspires to clarify the daunting experience for other first-generation students that he once faced himself. Lorenzo has over ten years of experience in college advising and currently oversees new initiatives.

Basado en esta experiencia Lorenzo conoce bien las barreras principales que asumimos con el temor de considerar opciones universitarias cuando los recursos son limitados. Refleccionando en su propia experiencia universitaria, el aspira poder clarificar lo que él vivió con sus sueños universitarios y a la misma vez poder inspirar a otros que tomen su lugar. Lorenzo tiene más de 15 años de experiencia como consejero de admisiones y se encarga de iniciativas que promueven el acceso universitario para todos.
