Colin Blake - Community College of Rhode Island (Liston Campus)
Colin is originally from Richmond, Virginia and graduated from Brown University in May 2015. During his Brown career, he invested his time in spaces where he could explore social justice issues and work towards making his institution a more inclusive place. He has worked as both a Minority Peer Counselor and a Black Heritage Series Programmer, two positions that have inspired him to work in communities that lack access and opportunity. Concentrating in Africana studies and reflecting on his own experience as an underserved student in the public education system, he believes that education access is vital to creating equity and he hopes to be a part of that change. He is looking forward to returning for a second year at the Community College of Rhode Island.
