Staff Council is bringing back the Staff Spotlight! To kick it off, we’re spotlighting a new face on campus, Roger Moreano, the Assistant Director of Student Involvement for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Programs. Despite having been at Carthage for only three months so far, he has already made strong connections with students and has introduced new and impactful programming to the College.

Becky Windberg, Director of Student Involvement, had this to say about Roger: “We are so grateful to have Roger as part of the Student Involvement team and the Carthage community. Roger was eager to jump right into the swing of things during his first month by hosting diversity, equity and inclusion training sessions for Resident Assistants and Orientation Leaders, along with launching the first Pre-Orientation Program, First In The Family. Roger has added new events to the campus with great response from students! These fun and thought-provoking events have included a Freedom Film Documentary series, Java and Justice dialogues and culture-based immersion field trips - just to name a few! When asking students if they’ve met Roger yet, their consistent response has been, ‘Oh yeah - he’s awesome!’”

Thank you, Roger, for all you do for Carthage and our students!
