Student Spotlight
Name: Corina Gonzalez
Major: Communication Studies
Position: Office Manager & Coordinator
Q: How do you define interculturalism and the
role it plays in your life?
A: Interculturalism includes the relationships
between people with different cultural
backgrounds and supporting cross-cultural
dialogue within different communities creating
unity and promoting social justice. Due to my
position here at Ethnic & Intercultural Services, I am always open to learning about culture and
different traditions that can also be somewhat similar to my heritage (I find those types of
discoveries fascinating). Also, outside of LMU, I volunteer for a non-profit organization called
Family Promise of the South Bay where 12 interfaith churches participate in providing service
and resources for homeless families. It is important that I communicate well with the people
involved with this organization by respecting their values and traditions even though they are
different than mine/ours.
Q: How do you hope to incorporate what you’ve learned in the office and apply it to the
greater community?
A: I thank EIS for introducing me to educate myself and become part of a greater service outside
of Los Angeles. Last summer, I had the opportunity to go to the Dominican Republic with my
church congregation and help educate and counsel kids between the ages of 5-18 years. I went
with the intention of teaching these kids and yet I was taught. I also went with the intention of
making change in people’s lives and yet I was the one who was changed. For those that have not
gone on an AB trip or study abroad, I recommend that you do not miss out on these opportunities
that LMU provides to us.
Q: Can you share one defining moment that you’ve had while working in the EIS office
that solidified your interest in social equality?
A: The Tunnel of Oppression and Hope event that EIS plans with students and other departments
in Student Affairs made a huge impact on me. I am just amazed to see the passion in LMU
students when it comes to social equality. Through my self-reflections, personal experiences and
hardships, I have been able to identify my passion. I have been able to discover what makes my
heart sing from the inside out (if that makes any sense). I hope to one day run a program for First
Generation College Students or travel to different countries to promote education.
