Kevin Huang | The Wright State Guardian
In a campus-wide email, Wright State University (WSU) President Sue Edwards announced the appointment of Kevin Huang as the intercultural specialist of the Asian and Native American Center.
Mr. Huang’s appointment, the last of many new appointments by President Edwards in the culture and identity centers, will bring leadership to the new Asain and Native American Center. The search to fill these positions began in Fall 2020.
Huang serves as the Intercultural Specialist of the Center starting May third. This Center splintered from the original Office of Latinx, Asian and Native American Affairs. Fermin Recarte leads the Latin and Hispanic sides of the original office.
“This is a great change for the Culture and Identity Center as it will serve the growing population of LANA students better with more resources.” wrote Mia Honaker Interim Associate Director of LANA.
The new Intercultural Specialist
Huang holds a master’s degree in college student personnel from Bowling Green State University where he previously worked before gaining this position. The new leader holds experience with both college students and those in the Asian and Native American communities.
Huang will work with the other intercultural specialists as well as the new Vice President of inclusive excellence Dr. Mathew Chaney. This team of specialists works on initiatives including the retention of diverse students, recruitment of diverse students, and maintaining a safe and welcoming campus environment.
