About Me

Native to Texas, Gabriel Jesus Escobedo will be joining our Husky family as the new Director of Diversity and Inclusion. He brings with him his 11 years of experience of working with diverse populations and higher education from college admissions to campus programming. He has served on various boards and committees that directly focus on issues for Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion both in Texas and in Michigan. His goal is to foster a sense of belonging for students of diverse backgrounds and by doing so make higher education a place for all. 

He is currently finishing his PhD in Anthropology of Performing Arts and Latinx Studies. His dissertation focuses on how Latinx youth use forms of dance to create and navigate a sense of self within the United States. He hopes to finish in May 2023.
