Karina Rivera, M.Ed.

DHSI Project Director
Office of Equity and Inclusion


I received my Master of Education in 2018 with a focus on higher education and transfer student retention. Since then, I have worked in both student and academic affairs.  I have always been energized by the work of Equity and Inclusion and am excited to step into my role as the DHSI Project Director and champion this important project. As a first-generation college student who was also a transfer student, I am passionate about creating spaces where students see themselves reflected and making sure that every student has equitable access to the resources and support they deserve.
