Meet Leo Orange
Leo heads up our Educational Assistance Center. The EAC supports students who have psychological, emotional, and physical disabilities by providing reasonable accommodations. He also heads up our Veterans Resource Center, which helps student veterans navigate our educational programs and provides them a space to relax, study, and hang out on campus. For over two decades, Leo has helped democratize Oxnard College’s services so that all students can access our high-quality education and achieve their full potential.
After earning his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Rehabilitation Counseling from CSU Los Angeles, he began teaching at his alma mater. Later on, after running our EAC program for many years, Leo was tasked with running our District’s first Veterans Resource Center right here at Oxnard College in order to serve our community’s servicemembers, veterans, and military families.
