    Joe Morales 

    Hours: Wed 8 AM ‐ 4 PM, Thurs 8 AM ‐ 4 PM, Fri 8 AM ‐ 4 PM

     After serving the Thaddeus Stevens College community as a consultant for the past three years, Joe Morales will now be a more permanent part of the Stevens “family” in his role as part-time Coordinator of Campus Inclusion and Equity. Joe is a Brooklyn, New York native and "Army Brat" who relocated to new communities often as a child. These experiences led to a lifelong interest in culture, community building, and human relationships. From his perspective, inclusion, equity and diversity are not just academic exercises but core values that come from personal experience as well as extensive research.

    Over the past thirty years, Joe has been an English as a second language instructor and supervisor, Lancaster City Council member, diversity and inclusion consultant, nonprofit Executive Director, speaker and trainer. He received his undergraduate degree in Secondary Education English at Millersville University and his Master’s in Public Administration from Penn State. Joe especially appreciates the opportunity to partner with Jasmine Rivera, the college’s other Coordinator, on the development of programs, processes, training, and cultural enrichment activities designed to propel the mission of Thaddeus Stevens for many years to come.
