The NASPA Latinx/a/o Knowledge Community is showcasing the LKC leadership team and members in this series that we call, "Why I." We want to share with our Latinx/a/o community who members of the LKC leadership team are, our roles, and what inspired us to follow our career paths. Our goal is to increase the visibility of not just th eLKC, but to the leaders who make the LKC what is to us all. For questions regarding the "Why I" series, please contact the Communication Co-Chairs, Leonel Diaz ([email protected]) and Rosa Hanco ([email protected]).

Alex Cabal is the Center for Diversity and Social Justice Programs Director at Wentworth Institute of Technology. He currently serves as the LKC Awards Co-Chair. 

Why did you join the LKC?

Working closely with the LKC through its name change while co-chairing the Gender and Sexuality Knowledge Community gave me the chance to get to know members of the leadership team. This opportunity allowed me to explore a part of me that I put aside for many years and for that, I'm forever grateful. I wanted to be part of a group that continues to create and provide positives changes for its members.

 

Why did you choose your higher ed career path?

My involvement with the GSKC over most of my entire Higher Ed. career ignited my passion for social justice education that started at Wesleyan University in 2007.

 

Share with us a fun fact. It can be silly, funny, random, or anything you want to make it.

I won a dancing competition at Dean College titled, "Dancing with the Staff."
