Message from our Director


On behalf of El Centro’s staff, I would like to welcome you to our space. Students have always shared how El Centro has been a home away from home, helped them build connections, created their sense of belonging at the university, and most of all, exposed them to the resources available in both the office and throughout the campus. Please stop by and meet the incredible staff that work in El Centro!


Director of El Centro,

Dr. Guadalupe Salazar
