Greetings. My name is Pearl Leonard-Rock. I serve as the Director of the Diversity Center and of Multicultural Student Programs and Services. Engaging with students and planning enrichment activities both on and off campus to support academic success are some of the most enjoyable aspects of my work here at Gustavus Adolphus College.

I'm a recent graduate of the College Student Personnel M. Ed. program at Marquette University. I hail from the Chicago suburbs so prepare yourself for a whole lot of Bulls, Bears, and White Sox talk if you visit my office. My passion for social justice, equity initiatives, and student development make me very excited to be the Assistant Director of Multicultural Student Programs & Services in the Diversity Center. I look forward to getting to know the campus community, as well as collaborating with faculty, staff, and students.
