Lorenzo Gutierrez-Jarquin

Lorenzo Gutiérrez-Jarquin is Academic Advisor for the Department of Film and Electronic Arts and Director of Undergraduate Advising for the College of the Arts at CSULB. He previously served for two years as Associate Director of CSULB's University Center for Undergraduate Advising.

Prior to joining CSULB, Lorenzo was the Director of Academic Advising at Madonna University in Livonia, Michigan. While at Madonna, he contributed to a 6 percent increase in the year-to-year persistence and retention rate of first-year students. Before moving to Michigan, Lorenzo served as the Director of Academic Success (Title V, HSI federal grant) at Alliant International University in San Diego. Previously, as the Assistant Director at the University of San Diego, he assisted in the implementation of the TRiO Upward Bound program that helps low-income, first-generation college-bound high school students attain college admission.

Lorenzo earned a B.A. in Theology and Religious Studies and an M.A. in Counseling, both from the University of San Diego. He also completed doctoral coursework in higher education at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, while working at Madonna University. His doctoral research focuses on college persistence among first-year, under-represented, and other "at-risk" students, as well as immigration-related issues.
