PAC alumna recognized for making a difference

Tabatha Cruz, a 2005 Palo Alto College cum laude graduate, was recognized in the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier as one of Cedar Falls’ (Iowa) “20 Under 40 Class of 2013” and was featured in the Cedar Valley Business Monthly’s November issue. The “20 Under 40” list recognizes young people who have made a difference in their work to make their community a better place.

After graduating from Palo Alto College with an Associate of Arts in Psychology, Cruz transferred to the University of Northern Iowa (UNI) to complete her Bachelor of Arts in Family Service and continued to earn a Master of Science in College Student Personnel Administration from Illinois State University. For Cruz, the importance of promoting diversity at UNI encouraged her to apply for a position that would allow her to engage with students, faculty, and staff.

“Things are not going to change overnight, and somebody’s got to do the job and get people invested in change,” said Cruz 

As the program coordinator at UNI’s Center for Multicultural Education, Cruz assists in the development and coordination of multicultural programs, activities, and services. In addition, she serves as the liaison to numerous multicultural-based student organizations, such as Hispanic Latino Student Union, and assists them in their program planning efforts 

Aside from her regular duties, Cruz is actively involved on campus in a variety of other roles related to diversity education. She serves on the Diversity Matters Fund Committee, encouraging student organizations to collaborate with each other in various ways. Cruz is also the newly elected chair of the Student Affairs Diversity Team, which provides specialized educational programming for staff at UNI who work with diverse teams or students.

“UNI was such a wonderful place that opened so many doors of opportunity for me,” said Cruz. “As a former student of color [at UNI], I have a responsibility to give back, especially being part of the Bridge Scholarship Program.”

The UNI Bridge Scholarship Program at Palo Alto College began in 2000 as a unique opportunity for students to transfer to a university out of state. As part of the program, scholarship applicants visit UNI to tour the campus, learn about degree programs, meet former Palo Alto College students who have transferred to UNI, and interview for the opportunity to earn the Bridge Scholarship. Over 125 students from Palo Alto College have earned their bachelor’s degree from UNI since the Bridge Scholarship Program began in 2000.
