Santiago Solis joined Towson University in August 2007. As Assistant Vice President of Student Affairs for Diversity, Santiago spearheads the Center for Student Diversity, including a host of diversity initiatives on campus. He works closely with his professional staff assessing the needs of students to create programs that engage them in discussions on pluralism, race/ethnicity, class, gender, disability, and sexual identity/orientation. These programs are designed to help students become aware global citizens and informed critical thinkers.

As a first generation college student himself, Santiago’s primary goal is to create accessible, supportive, and highly rewarding learning environments for all students. Prior to joining the TU community, Santiago worked in the Registrar’s Office at Loyola Law School in Los Angeles, California. He also taught at-risk students in inclusive, general, and special education classrooms in Manhattan, the Bronx, Houston, San Diego, and Baltimore. Santiago has been an adjunct instructor at Teachers College Columbia University, The City College of New York (CUNY), the Johns Hopkins University, and Towson University.

Santiago completed his B.A. in History at UC Berkeley, his M.A. in History at Brown University, and his Ed.D. in Curriculum & Teaching at Columbia University. He currently serves on numerous boards and committees to improve the overall quality of programs and services for incoming and returning students.

Outside of work, Santiago enjoys reading, volunteering and watching documentaries.
