Bio: My name is Denée Jackson and I have been a Husky since 2010! I went to UConn for my Bachelors of Arts and graduated in 2014 with a major in Communications and a minor in Africana Studies. In undergrad, I wassuper involved in the Greek community, the African American Cultural Center organizations, and service activities. Since graduation, I have been working in the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life as a Program Specialist. In my role, I get to create educational workshops, plan large events, and advise Greek leaders.
As an educator and social justice activist, I never miss an opportunity to make sure that our students of color feel valued and important. I am passionate about equity, education, and Beyoncé. I love traveling and have a goal to travel to at least two new countries every year! I am humbled and excited to join the Husky Sport team and HESA program!
