My name is Kenneth Reid. I am a Chicago native, who has worked in higher education for a number of years supporting students and helping them develop their leadership abilities. It is my philosophy that "the best way of learning about anything is by doing" (Richard Branson). Thus, as the advisor of the Diversity Leadership Council (DLC), I try to encourage all of my students to reach their fullest potential by pushing them out of their comfort zone and encouraging them to take new risks. I welcome you to the DLC family and invite you to drop by my office to get to know me and the Diversity Center more.

My name is Samantha Vang, a senior double major in Political Science and Communications with a Japanese minor. I spent the 2014-2015 academic year abroad in Japan. My first two years at Gustavus, I co-founded and co-chaired Diversity Education Exploration Project. I am still unsure of where I want to go in life, but I have dreams of becoming a Foreign Service officer. My name is Jalen A. Gray. I am a Junior theatre major who is in love with the grand idea of diversity, equity, and inclusion. I am from Greenville, South Carolina, a good 'ol southern boy! I have been a part of many social justice minded groups that include - I Am, We Are, Greenville Slam Poets for Change, and a few others. Now that I am a Co-Chair of DLC, I am able to continue my love for social change and apply that to a greater population! Let's make this world a better place.

 I am your lovely Public Relations Chair, Rojo Andriamihaja! I am a senior History major and (unoffical, because I still need to declare it) French minor. I have been a member of I Am We Are since my first year. I currently serve as treasurer and interim president for Zeta Chi Phi Multicultural Sorority Inc. (a DLC org also!). Basically, I do a lot. In the free time that I make for myself, I enjoy perusing the internet, chatting with friends about various issues, crushing it in Disney trivia, and hanging out in the Diversity Center.
If you ever need to find me, I'm usually there!
I am the new Secretary for DLC, Elli Moran. I am a junior English major with a Music minor. I am involved in Two other DLC groups: International Cultures Club (ICC, I'm also the secretary) and Zeta Chi Phi Multicultural Sorority, Inc. I love pandas.
Patrick is the parliamentarian for the Diversity Leadership Council. He has served as the Gustavus Adolphus Democrats’ representative for DLC previously. Outside of DLC he is a Political Science major where he enjoys discussing feminist issues and intersectional issues. Outside of his studies, Patrick enjoys hanging out with his brothers in the Epsilon Pi Alpha fraternity, as well as what he likes to call “for fun reading.” Feel free to stop him around campus to ask what he’s been reading lately!
 I am Habiba Jaji, a sophomore who intends on majoring in Accounting. I am from Lagos, Nigeria, which is located in West Africa.  My interests are reading, cooking and movies.  Currently, I am the Treasurer of DLC, a Collegiate Fellow in Norelius and also a member of the Pan- Africa Student Organization (PASO).
