Caleb Lee González is a fifth-year PhD student specializing in Rhetoric, Composition and Literacy. He is a 2022 national recipient of the K. Patricia Cross Future Leaders Award in Higher Education from the American Association of Colleges and Universities (AAC&U). He has supported the Department of English as the administrative assistant (2021-2022) for the Minor in Professional Writing. Furthermore, he was a consultant for Writing Across the Curriculum (2022-2023) and an associate coordinator (2021-2022) for the Writing Center in the Center for the Study and Teaching of Writing (CSTW). Currently, he is a Graduate Enrichment Fellow through the support of the Graduate School. He also serves on the Editorial Board and Publications Review Board of the WAC Clearinghouse.

His work is shaped by his undergraduate education as a first-generation, transfer and commuter student at three Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs) and two emerging Hispanic-Serving Institutions (eHSIs) in Colorado and Texas. His research examines how first-year writing programs at HSIs and eHSIs both shape and are shaped by their designation through programmatic practices such as the design of writing objectives and goals, placement procedures, curricula & instruction, instructor training activities and assessment. As a committed researcher-teacher-administrator, his interests are motivated by programmatic practices of education that support and sustain equity, inclusion and transformation.
