Seriously – we don’t know how we got so lucky. They’re already doing the hard work to change their campuses for the better. We’re here with guidance, access to experts, and a stipend for their time.

Get to know our fellows!

Luis attends Rutgers University, where he’s majoring in Information Technology and Informatics, with concentrations in Social Entrepreneurship and Spanish. He’s looking at how to use technology as a tool to disrupt violent and harmful norms surrounding gender-based violence, campus sexual assault, and interpersonal violence. Luis is the Global Executive Director of the Google Community Leaders Program New Brunswick, and has attended White House briefings on campus sexual assault on behalf of the National Association of BIG Ten Students. Luis is the first member of his family to attend college, and helped to break the world record for most people dancing the robot at the same time!
