Campus Champion

Analicia Gonzalez loves big responsibilities, so chairing the annual Student Conference on Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Social Justice is exciting to her. The junior community health major and women’s, gender, and sexuality studies minor has attended other diversity conferences and they are always amazing. It’ll be virtual, and it’ll be big, with two speakers, many sessions and students from other colleges participating. “It’s so important for our community to learn about and celebrate our differences.” Next, Analicia will focus on the new student club she started on mental health called Mind Over Everything – MOE. As a resident assistant, she saw a need for such a group, took responsibility, and formed one.
