Keynote Speaker Revealed for the Student Leadership Colloquium on Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Social Justice: Show Me Your Brave
Mr. Lyndon Huling, Student Activities Coordinator at the Center for Student involvement at the University of California, Davis
Lyndon’s higher education journey brought him from California to New York and back, including a two-year stay with the Multicultural Life and Diversity office at SUNY Cortland as the Assistant Director. Along the way, Lyndon has had the opportunity to engage with student leaders who have shaped his understanding of how diversity, equity, inclusion, and social justice intersect with student development in higher education. As an inner-city youth growing up in Vallejo, California, Lyndon overcame many challenges with the support of teachers and mentors in order to pursue his dream of attending college. Lyndon’s experiences during that period of his life have led him to pursue positions where he has the opportunity to be an advocate for underrepresented students, and act as ally for those whose voices are silenced by the hierarchy of education in the United States. By investing his time and energy in promoting the success of students, Lyndon believes he is honoring those who supported him through his own educational journey.
For the last year and a half, Lyndon has served as a key member of the Student Affairs team at UC Davis and supports the campus during protests, student activism, and contentious programming. In this capacity, Lyndon has provided leadership and education while helping the campus community navigate complex and challenging situations such as tuition hikes, police injustice, and cultural appropriation. By working with students, administration, and community members, Lyndon works to create brave spaces where every voice can be heard, and students are empowered to ignite movements. Lyndon believes that the free exchange of ideas is at the foundation of higher education, and dialogue is critical in developing student leaders to be engaged citizens and critical thinkers.
