Name: Tamara Serrano
Graduate Program: American Culture Studies (MA, '09)
After graduation: I worked as a Program Coordinator for a Bilingual Theater group for youth and children in Southwest Detroit, Michigan.
Current Position: Academic Advisor and a Program Coordinator, Center for Latino/a and Latin American Studies, Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan
I specifically oversee a program called the College to Career (C2C) program that assists underrepresented students with skill building around professional development and graduate school preparedness.
“I've always had a passion for Multicultural Affairs and ACS allowed me to truly understand and apply many of the theories and practices associated with cultural, ethnic and gender studies. Conversations around identity development, access to educational resources, and community empowerment are a daily professional and personal occurrence for me. Through my experiences with courses, professors and peers in the ACS program, I feel I have the intellectual capacity to engage in these conversations and also help guide and empower future generations of Latinos/as and communities of color.”
