Pronouns: She | Her | Ella

Joined by her overly energetic pups and unbothered cat, CII Latinx Student Services Director Aisury Vasquez comes to Colorado from the Appalachian Mountains of West Virginia. Vasquez is skilled at assessing policy, challenging the status quo, and leading campus transformational efforts. Vasquez has had the opportunity to create radically inclusive educational spaces for historically marginalized students both internationally and domestically. 

Prior to tackling roles advocating for equitable practices in higher education, Vasquez attempted to be a gardener, chicken farmer, and runner. When her dogs aren’t forcing her on multiple walks, Vasquez enjoys attending poetry slams, dancing, and refurbishing furniture.

The mission of Latinx Student Services is to provide an inclusive environment to support the intersectional experiences, diverse cultures, and educational goals of Latinx students a CU Denver.

We seek to accomplish this by:

  • Advocating for the needs of Latinx students
  • Supporting students to amplify their voice and enact agency
  • Providing programs, events, and workshops that raise awareness about social justice issues that impact the diverse Latinx cultures, identities, and intersectional experiences.
  • Supporting the leadership development of Latinx student organizations.
  • Building community and a sense of belonging for all Latinx students, faculty, and staff.
