Who We Are (OID)
Jonathan Chan, Program Coordinator
Born in Southern California and raised by Singaporean Chinese parents, program coordinator Jonathan Chan is a product of his cultural roots and upbringing in the USA. His first investment in higher education came through a passion for breakdancing for the past 10 years – he discovered the profession of student affairs by hosting dance and arts events at the University of California, Riverside! Eager to pursue a career that provides holistic and co-curricular education for college students, he entered California State University, Fullerton’s M.S. in higher education program not too long after completing his baccalaureate degree. Now that he is finished with his graduate program, Jonathan is excited to be part of the OID team. He joins us with a background working in disability student services, with Asian American and Pacific Islander students, and with students in living-learning communities. He enjoys talking to students about their aspirations for a career and the personal stories that drive them to succeed. email@example.com 909.607.1865
