My name is Juan Figueroa and I have been working in higher education for twelve years. I received my B.S. in Physiology from The University of Arizona in 2013 and I am currently completing my M.S. in Organizational Leadership with a projected graduation date of Spring 2023. Over the course of those twelve years in student services and higher education, I have spent seven years with Maricopa Community Colleges in Arizona and the past 5 years at UCSD in sunny San Diego, California. I have a passion for higher education and enjoy working in a team environment to support students. I am grateful to have joined the Sixth College team in February of 2022.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my fiancé and our dog (a rescued pitty) exploring our city, traveling, camping, and spending time in nature. A fun fact about me is that I come from a family of 7 and am the youngest of 5 siblings! I spent part of my life living in Los Angeles County and part of my life living in Arizona, and moved to San Diego California where I have resided since 2016. I am grateful for my journey thus far with UCSD and strive to provide students with the highest quality student services possible! Come visit us at the Catalyst Building or online during drop-in hours! Go Tritons!
