Ashley Tang (she/her/hers) Local High School Outreach Commissioner
Hi everybody, my name is Ashley! I’m an incoming fourth year majoring in Public Health Policy with a minor in Business Management. I’m honored to serve as your Director for the Local High School Outreach Commission this year. Formerly serving as a Global Connect mentor for Orange County highschools this past year, I witnessed first-hand both the immense potential and drive students have for higher education when given the adequate resources which has led me to joining LHSO. My goal is to address educational disparities between higher education and underserved high schools. Apart from being a Director, I’m also a Campus Representative and research assistant at UCI’s SEARCH Lab. Besides catching me walking backwards giving campus tours, you can find me anywhere outdoors or trying exotic fruit. If you have any questions/would like to chat, feel free to contact me at highschooloutreach@asuci.uci.edu!

The Local High School Outreach (LHSO) Commission aims to educate all high school students on the steps and pathways to higher education while engaging UCI students with opportunities to be mentors, lead workshops, and foster awareness of social justice on campus. We are dedicated to providing high schoolers with tangible resources, such as workshops and mentors, that will enable them to overcome the challenges and systemic barriers to a quality education.

Mission Statement:

  • Introduce and educate underserved high-school students (Title 1 schools) on the pathways to higher education through practical college/career workshops.
  • Connect LHSO staffers with high-school students through mentorship, creating both personal and professional development opportunities for UCI students and high school students.
  • Foster student awareness and engagement on topics of social justice, enabling students to become leaders in their communities.
  • Partner with various student organizations and other ASUCI commissions to provide UCI students with leadership growth opportunities, in addition to expanding the scope of these organizations.

Hey everyone! My name is Caleb, Director for the Local High School Outreach Commission and fourth year Business Economics major. My passion for helping students stems from my previous experiences as a Staffer for LHSO and Lead Art Instructor at Galileo Learning, as well as years of volunteer work in children’s ministry at my home church. I’ve come to understand just how valuable school is to our youth, but with that, my eyes have been opened to the barriers that many high school students face when striving to reach higher education. My goal is to break these barriers down by providing as many opportunities and resources as possible to the underprivileged high schools around UCI and beyond. I know that LHSO can make an impact and serve as an outlet for UCI to give back to the community. Beyond this role, I’m also a co-founder of Fashion and Sneakers at UCI and an incoming Rotational Management Program Trainee for Gap Inc. In my free time, you can find me buying/selling clothes and shoes or reading the latest news on streetwear, hip-hop, and all things pop culture (mostly the geeky stuff, like comic books, cartoons, movies, etc).
