I am Janet Jennings and I serve as the DLC Advisor. I am originally from Los Angeles and a recent Alumni of Gustavus. I am excited to work with students of all backgrounds and feel that DLC is the perfect place to foster community rooted in equity and intersectionality. Please know that all are welcome to join us during Community Comment for diversity-related issues. I also encourage you to visit the Diversity Center in the lower part of Jackson Campus Center!

Hey! My name is Quincy Yangh and I am one of the Co-Chairs of Diversity Leadership Council. I am currently a second year pursuing a degree in Political Science, and a degree in Geography. I ran for the position of Co-Chair because I want to help DLC reach the potential it has. On campus I am also a Collegiate Fellow in Sohre, a student staff in the Diversity Center, The Co-President of Hmong American Outreach, and an active member in Building Bridges. On my free time I like to go on coffee dates with my friends, play badminton and volleyball, listen to music, and watch Netflix. This year I plan on helping DLC become more recognized, and to promote inclusion and diversity. 

How goes it! My name is Brittney Johnson and I am serving as one of the Diversity Leadership Council Co-Chairs. I am a junior geology and environmental studies double major. In my role as Co-Chair, I strive to promote inclusiveness and encouragement of diversity on campus by working with an amazing team of people to serve the community. Apart from DLC I am a student member on the President’s Council on Diversity Equity and Inclusion and Co-President of Pan Afrikan Student Organization. In my free time I like watching documentaries and exploring the outdoors.

Hey All! My name is Karrie Villarreal and I am the Secretary for the Diversity Leadership Council(DLC). I am a junior Latin American Latina/o and Caribbean Studies and Spanish double major. Apart from DLC I am a co-president of the Organization for LatinX American Students, a mentor for the Summer Institute for Academic Success, a coordinator for the Women of Color Summit, a language buddy at the St. Peter high school and a part of Building Bridges. With my free time I love to get froyo with pals, pet all the dogs I see and meet gusties around campus. I am so excited this year to work with a team to promote diversity, equity and inclusion!

Hello, I’m Jeanet Hinds (but I go by J) and I’m serving as the Public Relations Chair for DLC. I’m a junior Psychology major and published author of, Year of the Hermit. This year I’m grateful to be apart of the Diversity Leadership Council and PASO board because I truly believe in the ethics of these organizations. My free time is spent painting, writing, and unwinding with yoga/meditation. Though psychology is undoubtedly aligned with my path, I appreciate spaces like DLC for allowing me to also pursue my passions regarding being an active citizen. One of my main goals as a member of this organization is to be a good observer. Bettering the organization by growing an understanding of the communities it supports.
