Dear Campus Community,
I am pleased to announce that Kevin Huang has been named the intercultural specialist of the Asian and Native American Center at Wright State University. He will join the university on May 3.
Mr. Huang will oversee the daily operations of the Asian and Native American Center. He will provide programs and activities that promote an understanding of Asian and Native American cultures and that facilitate the academic success and personal development of students and the effectiveness of faculty and staff.
Mr. Huang served as events and programming coordinator of the Arts Village Learning Community and as the Asian Pacific Islander Desi American (APIDA) graduate assistant in the Office of Multicultural Affairs at Bowling Green State University. He is also an Asian Pacific American Network regional ambassador for the American College Personnel Association. Previously, he was a teaching assistant in the Center for Excellence in Learning and Teaching at Capital University.
As a student at Ohio State, he served as a student associate and an intern for Asian/Asian American initiatives in the Office of Student Life Multicultural Center and as a student worker on the study abroad team in the Office of International Affairs.
Mr. Huang received his master's degree in college student personnel from Bowling Green State University and his bachelor's degree in economics, with a minor in Asian American studies, from The Ohio State University.
Over the last few months, Wright State has hired Dr. Mathew Chaney as vice president of inclusive excellence and four intercultural specialists to oversee our cultural and identity centers as part of our collective efforts to create and sustain a welcoming campus environment and institutional culture that supports diversity, accessibility, equity, and inclusion. Mr. Huang joins our other intercultural specialists: Quatez Scott in the Bolinga Black Cultural Resources Center; Emily Yantis-Houser in the Office of LGBTQA Affairs; and Fermín Recarte in the Latin and Hispanic Culture Center.
Thank you to the members of the search committee for their work on this successful search.
Please join me in welcoming Kevin Huang to the Wright State family.
