Hi all! My name is Derek Smith (He, Him, His) and I am from Southern California (Orange County). I earned my bachelor of arts from California State University, Fullerton (Go Titans!) in Business Administration with a concentration in Finance and then went on to pursue my masters in Higher Education Administration with a focus in Student Affairs from the University at Buffalo in New York. I currently serve as the Resident Director for Christian and Cheney Halls and work with the African American Theme Program! I have an interest for social justice and inclusion education and educational policy. In my free time, I enjoy going to various sporting events, traveling, and cooking up new recipes!
