Juliana Chaparro

TRiO - Student Support Services Director - Valley Campus

Main 202G

I am originally from Bogota, Colombia, South America and I also speak Spanish. I migrated to the United States when I was 19 years old. Raised by a single mom, and being a first generation student I completed the GED program at TSJC with the goal in mind of learning the English language and obtaining the key to access higher education. I have a Bachelors of Arts in Psychology and Spanish. I completed a Masters of Arts in Community Counseling and through the Higher Education, Administration and Leadership program at ASU, also finished a certificate in Executive Leadership.

I firmly believe in how education, discipline and determination allow you to succeed. Support programs such as TRiO provide the guidance in a world that may seem difficult to conquer. I am a TRiO alumni and as a Director of Student Support Services and the Learning Center Coordinator in the Valley Campus, I can attest in how our students are highly supported and encouraged to complete their program of study and continue on when transferring to a 4-year college or university.

I am confident to assist you with academic advising, tutoring, transferring and college navigation in general.

I appreciate the uniqueness that every student brings and it is always a pleasure to be part of your academic journey at Trinidad State!
