Andre Koen, MA

Director of Equity and Access, Adjunct Faculty Member

Andre helps government and educational organizations manage and train staff, employees, and clients on diversity issues without blame, fault, or guilt. His organization understands that people are doing the best they can with what they have, yet encourages them to examine themselves, explore other cultures, and become allies for others. Andre works to move people's behaviors not by pushing them or making them feel guilty. His courses teach individuals to dissect, analyze, and make meaning of the issues that challenge them in a fair, balanced way that can be heard and understood. He motivates individuals to create something collaboratively.
