Bio: Hi! My name is Trevor Madore (he/him/his), and my path towards a career in HESA has been largely shaped by my drive to disrupt systems that inhibit student success, along with fate and serendipity.

In 2014, I graduated from Saint Michael's College outside Burlington, Vermont with a degree in Political Science and Peace & Justice. I held various leadership positions on campus, developing skills in political organizing and advocacy. Upon graduation, I applied to the Episcopal Service Corps, and was placed at a high school in Los Angeles, California, which ultimately introduced me to the field of education. I worked primarily in college access programming, and after a few years in the role, was eager to expand my impact on the student experience. I applied to Teach for America, and began working as a Language Arts Teacher in Miami, Florida.

Through these professional experiences, I discovered my skill and passion for building positive relationships with students, while guiding them towards personal and academic success. At the same time, I grew in my knowledge and criticisms of white supremacy, cisheteropatriarchy, capitalism, and the systemic barriers students face as they pursue higher education. I was compelled to apply for HESA programs to become an institutional advocate for all students, because it is not enough for schools to simply strive for accessibility, as they must, but they must also create institutions that are genuinely supportive, welcoming, and affirming for all students throughout their collegiate experiences. During my undergraduate career, I would have never predicted this journey, but I am excited to continue it at UConn!

Outside of work and academics, I enjoy most outdoor activities, watching movies, and listening to music. Let's day-trip somewhere!
