Ms. Ayala received her Master of Science, Student Affairs in Higher Education from Missouri State University and comes to us with over 10 years of higher education experience, most recently from the University of Arizona. Her work has focused on building collaborations with DEI campus and community partners to ensure a support system for students as they foster a sense of their self-identity and belonging during their academic careers.
Ms. Ayala is a first-generation college student and a daughter of Colombian immigrants with a passion for assisting students to build community, create a sense of belonging, and develop the skills and motivation necessary to achieve their goals. She plans to be on campus beginning December 6th and is looking forward to getting to know everyone and joining in the work we are doing to help our students have the best experience humanly possible.
