Evelyn's Hook 'Em Party! :D
With mixed emotions I write to share that Evelyn Ambriz, Assistant Dean of Students will soon end her time at Cornell. Evelyn has an interest in policy, and this fall took a big step applying to doctoral programs and has chosen to make Austin and The University of Texas her new home as a doctoral student in Educational Leadership and Policy. Evelyn will work with Dr. Liliana Garces to explore policy implications as it relates to the experiences of students of color at predominately white institutions.
A Cornellian (BS ’11, MPA ’15), Evelyn first joined the staff ranks as a Graduate Student Adviser in Engineering and then made a move to the Office of the Dean of Students leading Student Development Diversity Initiatives (SDDI) in July 2016. She works tirelessly to support the vision of the student organizations she advises and offers advice and support to dozens of student organizations who seek out her knowledge. This year she advised a collective group of student organizations to successfully host the inaugural CUlture Fest, coached the student leaders of the Lending Library as they work to expand their support of low-income students. A strong campus collaborator, Evelyn brought students and staff from SDDI, A3C, Akwe:kon, the Latino Living Center, Ujaama Residential College, ALANA Intercultural Programming Board, Intercultural Programs, and the Intergroup Dialogue Project to develop impactful programming for students of color. As she ends her time at Cornell, she is investing in the womxn and the work of B.O.S.S. as they expand their one-day mental health conference to two days. Evelyn puts her love for Cornell and the success of students into every project she begins and completes.
We joyfully celebrate her next steps as a full-time Ph.D. student but will miss Evelyn’s fierce advocacy for students and institutional knowledge.
Evelyn’s last day is July 6th.
Evelyn plays an important role in the lives of students, so we are offering a time for students to wish her well and share their memories on Tuesday, May 8th from 4-5pm in 6-2-6 (626 Thurston Ave).
