Director of the CCCC
I am deeply honored to hold the position of Director of the César Chávez Cultural Center. Together with an amazing staff of three lead staff, 14 work-study students and one Diversity Mentor, we daily tackle the mission of the CCCC. My favorite thing about the Center is the constant flow of students that engage in conversation, meet friends, study, work and form lifelong relationships with both staff and students.
Hola! I love working at the César Chávez Cultural Center (CCCC) with students from all walks of life. I received my B.A. in Spanish with a minor in Criminal Justice, and M.A in Higher Education and Student Affairs Leadership (HESAL) from UNC. The Center is a “home away from home” for students and we strive to continuously make everyone feel welcome. I know the determination, commitment, and dedication it takes to succeed in higher education and I strive to help students see and meet their fullest potentials. SI SE PUEDE!
