Andy CARE Profile

Men's Engagement Educator


Major/Minor: Chicanx Studies and Psychology B.S., Minor in Applied Psychology 
Year: 4th

Hey everybody, as the M.E.E. for the CARE office my responsibility is to work towards fostering a culture on campus that encourages men to engage in prevention education and to lead a joint effort among a diverse group of people to promote a healthy and more inclusive narrative of masculinity at UCSB. I love being able to expand my work to reach different people on campus while challenging myself to unlearn dominant narratives of masculinity that society often overlooks. I only hope to set the foundation on campus for the future generation of Gauchos to continue the work!

What Andy likes to do outside of his work at CARE: "I love skateboarding around Isla Vista (make sure to wear a helmet!) and I hope to learn how to surf before I leave UCSB. In addition, I have been a Marvel fan all my life so if you even want to theorize on their movies and TV shows fee free to reach out!"
