UCLA Staff Highlight

Kevin Medina, UCLA Alumni '16

Kevin Medina '16 completed his Masters in Public Policy and Social Welfare at UCLA and now works as Program Coordinator for the UCLA LGBT Campus Resource Center. Kevin's proudest accomplishment during his time as a UCLA staff member includes reshaping the Center's LGBTQ Allyship Training Program, a three-hour program designed to help students, staff, and faculty learn about LGBTQ terminology, effective strategies to support LGBTQ people on and off campus, and more.

When asked about his advice to new staff, Kevin recommends prioritizing a work-life balance. "It's easy to get consumed by everything happening on campus," said Kevin. "I make it a point to seek opportunities that complement my interests and keep me healthy."
