Anna Hilke, Director

M.A. Higher and Postsecondary Education, Teachers College, Columbia University

I found a lifelong interest in helping students navigate transition and find success and belonging when I served on the transfer and exchange student executive board in college. I officially began my career in Higher Education at Columbia University as Assistant Director of Leadership Lab, where I focused on creating programming and resources aimed at students' individual and team development. While at Columbia, I earned my MA in Higher and Postsecondary Education from Teachers College with specific interest in guided pathways and major and career decision-making for Community College students. I joined Cal in 2020, as a major advisor in the Physics Department, and am thrilled to now be working with the re-entry student community.

Julio Gomez, Intake Counselor

B.A. Anthropology and Indigenous Studies, University of California, Berkeley

I attended Cal as a re-entry student starting in the Fall of 2020. Doing my entire first year remote deprived me of community support and it helped me realize how vital finding that support is to getting the most out of my time at UC Berkeley. After graduating in 2022 and now in my role with the program I forefront the importance of finding your spaces on campus. It was in community with the Re-entry Student Program that I learned about the critical resources available to students. Highlighting resources and building community are my priorities.
