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 is the relationship between people from different cultural backgrounds. Interculturalism
supports cross-cultural dialogues amoung diverse communities, while creating unity and promoting social
justice. I feel that Interculturalism plays a huge role in everyone’s life. Through my position here in the
Department of Ethnic & Intercultural Services, I am always open to learning about different cultures and
traditions many of which are similar to my heritage (I find those types of discoveries fascinating). Outside
of LMU, I volunteer for a non-profit organization called Family Promise of the South Bay where twelve
interfaith communities participate in providing services and resources for homeless families. It is important
that I communicate well with the people involved (both serving and serviced) with this organization by
respecting their values and traditions even though they are different than mine.
Q: How do you hope to incorporate what you’ve learned in the office and apply it to the greater
A: I thank EIS for encouraging me to engage in opportunities 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, yet I was taught. I also
went with the intention of making a positive change in people’s lives, yet I was the one who changed. For
those that have not gone on an AB trip or studied abroad, I recommend that you do not miss out on these
opportunities that LMU provides for 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 had a huge impact on me. During the planning process, I was amazed to see the passion in LMU
students, faculty, and staff, when it comes to social equality. On the day of the event, I participated in the
tour that highlights the contemporary issues of oppression. Through my self-reflections, personal
experiences, and hardships, I have been able to identify my various passions and discover what makes my
heart sing. I hope to one day manage a program for First Generation College Students or travel to different
countries to promote education.
