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 my work in a variety of offices including financial aid and enrollment, graduate admissions, study abroad and TRIO/Student Support Services.
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 researching the state of public health within the Latino community and its direct relation to the immigration debate, an interest triggered by the stories and struggles that patients shared with me while I worked 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!
