Fostering Success and Approaching Inclusion Through a Trauma-Informed Lens

Fostering Success is a community for UA students that have experienced foster care or housing insecurity. We will discuss our mission as a program, how we experience inclusion on campus and in the community, and how others can begin to expand their definitions of diversity to consider our lived experiences. Our student participants and staff members drive the direction of the program and will provide insight into the barriers, challenges, and tools that they have encountered through this work.

Speaker Bio: Dani Carrillo is the coordinator for Fostering Success at the University of Arizona and has been in that role for the past 2½ years. She was tasked with launching the program in Fall 2018 and continues to oversee all aspects including student recruitment, outreach, development, hiring, and student engagement and support. Before overseeing Fostering Success, Dani worked with youth in and recently aged out of foster care in the state of Arizona to connect them with resources and to develop the necessary skills to live independently. She is deeply committed to advocating for students on this campus and expanding the reach of Fostering Success.
