M.A. Project Chair: 
David Stacey
Graduation Year: 

After receiving my MA at HSU, I held a number of leadership roles in academic support and student success, overseeing peer tutoring, coordinating HSI-oriented tutoring activities, and teaching first-year composition. As the current Director of Tutoring Services at Cal State Monterey Bay, I oversee high-quality, nationally-certified tutoring, peer coaching, graduate student support, and mentoring, with deep partnerships with student disabilities professionals, graduate faculty, and transfer-serving partners. I am also in my first year of the Doctorate of Education in Educational Leadership program at San Jose State University. My research interests include socially-just higher education leadership and frameworks for culturally-responsive practices for non-faculty student-serving professionals in co-curricular areas like financial aid and advising, with a particular focus on this at the California State University. As a future leader and higher education administrator, I am interested in understanding and advocating for the appropriate professional learning and growth opportunities for these post-secondary student-serving professionals.
