Joe graduated in 2011 from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with a BA in Communication & Latina/o Studies. While at the University of Illinois, Joe worked as a Multicultural Advocate where he fostered diversity, multiculturalism, and social justice within the residence hall community through community and staff development, education, celebration, and dialogue. Joe also worked at La Casa Cultural Latina where he collaborated with other staff members to promote a welcoming and dynamic atmosphere through the development and execution of educational, cultural, political, and social programs. Joe's unique experiences, undergraduate coursework, and work history all sparked his interest in pursuing a career in Student Affairs. Joe is currently pursuing his Masters in Higher Education at Loyola University Chicago. Joe serves as the Graduate Assistant for the Department of Student Diversity and Multicultural Affairs. Joe is thrilled about working with S.T.A.R.S, Loyola's mentoring program for underrepresented students and supporting the mission, vision, and promise of Loyola University Chicago.
