Coordinator, Dream Center

707.524.1540 | ebarragan@santarosa.edu

Eva attended Sonoma State University right after high school, earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Biology. While attending Sonoma State she worked for Admissions and Records as a student employee and eventually joined the full-time staff. After working for SSU's Admissions and Records Department for 9 years, she then transferred to their Financial Aid Office. In 2015 Eva joined the Admissions and Records Office at Santa Rosa Junior College. Eva's focus in Admissions and Records was community outreach and facilitating high school workshops which made her a perfect fit for the Student Outreach team where she shared her talents from October 2017 to December 2019. Eva's years of experience working with undocumented students in A&R, Financial Aid, and Student Outreach at SSU and SRJC has given her the foundation for providing direct support to undocumented students in her new role. Her dedication to working with students and helping to make their lives better is just the start of what she will advocate for and provide to the undocumented community.

Elias joined the Schools Relations and Outreach Team in December 2015 and is a founding member of the Student Outreach team.

707.521.7854 | bcamargo@santarosa.edu

Beatriz is a proud SRJC Alumni, a Migrant Education student, and a graduate of Elsie Allen High School. As an SRJC student, she had the honor to participate in programs that supported her educational achievements such as Puente, MESA, and EOPS. She has worked for 20+ years at Santa Rosa Junior College in various capacities and departments that include, Puente, MESA, Community Education, Assessment and Matriculation, and most currently as the Coordinator for the High School Equivalency Program (HEP). This federally-funded program assists migrant farmworkers and their families in obtaining a high school equivalency certificate and continuing on to post-secondary education. Beatriz accepted the role of Director, Student Outreach, Onboarding & International Student Program with excitement to continue the great partnerships and connections established by former director, Michelle Booher-Poggi. As the daughter of immigrant farm workers who rebuilt their lives from scratch in the U.S., Beatriz Camargo is a fervent advocate for college education and intimately knows the obstacles of underserved communities. Her commitment to student support, onboarding, inclusion, and retention go beyond SRJC grounds and expand into the broader diverse communities found within our surrounding areas. Her mission is to keep our communities connected to the great programs and opportunities that SRJC has to offer!

From an application for admission through first-year success – undocumented, international, or domestic – all students are welcome at SRJC, and Beatriz’s teams will get you through!
