Christopher was awarded the Professional Excellence Award at the 36th Annual LICSPA Conference (Long Island Council of Student Personnel Administrators) held February 3rd. As the Graduate Assistant in the Office of Campus Life at LIU Post, Christopher has expanded his position; originally focused on residential programs, it now focuses more on diversity and social justice. Most notably, he hosted the first “Cultural Explosion” attended by over 600 students. His commitment to providing opportunities for all students through innovative programming and mentorship has been shown on many occasions. The work he has done inspires those around him to do better work. Recently, Christopher has accepted a position at NYU as an Academic Adviser for the College of Arts & Science and Assistant Director of the University Learning Center.
