Gateway to College National Network is pleased to welcome Alina Randall as our new Coordinator of Network Membership. In her role, Alina serves as a frequent point of contact with our national network partners, ensuring that they are informed of important network news & have access to the wide range of resources critical to their success. Alina will collaborate with the Education Services team on special projects, as well as develop and promote student leadership opportunities for GtC program alumni.
Prior to GtCNN, Alina received her Masters in Sociology from Humboldt State University. She is a Pomo Native and enrolled member of Round Valley Indian Tribes, which shaped her focus to examine the U.S. Criminal Justice System and its effects on Indigenous Nations. Alina has evaluated juvenile probation programs and was a member of the Youth Disparities Reduction Collaborative in Humboldt County. She received her B.A. in Sociology from San Francisco State. While in San Francisco, Alina worked for a few nonprofits collaborating with low-income communities around education equity, which propelled her passion to partner with communities and address the inequities of marginalized youth. Alina can relate to GtC students and recognizes it took a village to get her to this point in her life and she will make every effort to be part of the GtC village for our youth.
