Michelle Lee

Coordinator for Asian and Pacific Islander Student ServicesBorn and raised in Oregon, as the eldest of a Korean immigrant family, Michelle is the firstborn child, a first generation US citizen, and a first generation college student. She attended Oregon State University for her undergraduate studies in Human Development and Family Studies with a concentration in Child Development, graduating in 2012 with a Bachelor of Science. Though she had originally planned to become a grade school teacher, Michelle soon felt a strong purpose and passion for student affairs and higher education through her leadership experiences, supportive mentors, and her high level of involvement on campus with cultural student organizations. Michelle also worked for the Asian and Pacific Cultural and Resource Center at OSU, gaining a strong interest in leadership development and ways of empowering students of color on predominantly white campuses. She moved on to study Student Development Administration at Seattle University, also working for the Office of New Student and Family Programs, and graduated in 2015 with her Master’s degree in Education. Throughout her experiences as an undergraduate and graduate student, Michelle’s identities as a first generation student of color from a low income household have shaped her interests in promoting social justice, access, and equity in higher education for underserved student identities. Michelle is excited to be part of the PSU community, serving as the Coordinator for Asian and Pacific Islander Student Services, and hopes to empower and lift underrepresented student voices at PSU.
