Mucho gusto! My name is Dulce Monterrubio and I am honored to serve as the director of the Latin@ Student Services office. Originally from México D.F., I moved to Minnesota in 2000 to pursue a B.A. in International Relations at a small, liberal arts institution: Augsburg College. Since then, I have worked with students and their familias through the rewards and challenges that Latin@ students experience in higher education.
My commitment to bridging the gap for Latin@ students in higher education has been informed by the Latino community’s resilience and strength and by my own journey as an immigrant and first-generation college student. Moreover, I am passionate about the state of public health within the Latino community and its direct relation to the immigration debate, an interest triggered by my work as a medical interpreter at Hennepin County Medical Center.
I am a proud member of the Latino community, an Auggie at heart and a resource for you. I look forward to meeting you!
