Omar Avila

Portrait of Omar Avila
My name is Omar Avila and I am a senior Mathematics Major with minors in Computer Science and Psychology. I hold two positions that deal with Campus Diversity & Inclusion; one being Executive Director of Inclusion on ASUR student government in which I deal with campus wide diversity programming. The other position is "The League" coordinating intern, which deals with a men's only group on campus, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, that focuses on increasing campus engagement among male students, through programs geared towards the interests of men. Working in Campus Diversity & Inclusion has been a great learning experience. I've been able to come out of my comfort zone to experience and celebrate new cultures I had little knowledge of!
