Betsy Kaminski is the Director of Women, Gender, and Sexual Equity, which encompasses the Women’s Center and the Non-Traditional Student Resource Center. She came to UCSB after spending eleven years as a faculty member at a public university in Connecticut. She enjoyed teaching courses on subjects such as social movements, LGBTQ communities, research methods, and the sociology of music, but decided that she preferred working with students outside of the classroom on programs that reach across the university community. Influenced by her academic background in social movements, Betsy’s approach in mentoring students is to support them in identifying their strengths, envisioning their goals, and building coalitions in pursuit of social justice.

Hi! My name is Olamide Idowu and I am a second year undergraduate majoring in biology. In my free time I love to run, do some yoga, and hang out with friends at the beach. I'm not a non-traditional student but I'm excited to make connections with other students, as well as assist in programs that help create a safe and welcoming environment for everyone. While it's only my second year at UCSB I've seen what a close-knit community we have, and I can't wait to give back and be a part of it.
