Der Vang

Multicultural Liaison Officer

I am the Multicultural Liaison Officer for the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, and I am excited to work with you! I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Studies and a Bachelor of Arts in Digital Media Art at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. I spent a year working with service-learning initiatives as an AmeriCorps*Volunteer in Service To America before returning for graduate school. In May 2014, I finished my Masters of Education in Student Affairs and Graduate Certificate in Social Justice here at Iowa State University.

As the Multicultural Liaison Officer, I support initiatives to foster the recruitment of a diverse college community. I collaborate with faculty, staff, and student leaders to oversee programs that promote the academic, social, and professional success of students of color in our college. Another large part of my position is to engage students who are interested in learning more about diversity, equity, and inclusion as allies to underrepresented communities.
