Caleb Lee González is a fourth-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 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 teaching associate for the Young Scholars Program in the Office of Diversity and Inclusion and for the Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC) Program. He serves on the Editorial Board and Publications Review Board of the WAC Clearinghouse.

His work stems from cross-disciplinary work in Composition Studies, Writing Program Administration, and Higher Education Studies. Having experienced his undergraduate education as a first-generation, transfer, and commuter student at three Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs) and one emerging Hispanic-Serving Institution (HSI), his research examines the various ways in which first-year writing programs at HSI shape and are shaped by their minority-serving institutional landscapes. As a committed teacher-researcher-administrator, his interests are motivated by programmatic practices of education that support and sustain equity, inclusion and justice.
