As a residence hall coordinator working in Residential Life, Sylvia Jauregui helps students of all kinds find a home at Mizzou. In particular, as a Latinx woman, she loves having the opportunity to be a part of the representation of women of color working at the university.
Jauregui has worked for Residential Life for 16 years and has had an impact on hundreds of students. “It means a lot to me to be here for underrepresented students and first-generation college students who don’t have anyone who looks like them or who has had the same experiences as them,” Jauregui said. “I want to create a home for them at Mizzou and a sense of familiarity for them.”
Bill Stackman, vice chancellor for student affairs, recently talked with Jauregui to learn more about her favorite parts of her job and how students can be successful despite a pandemic.
