Dr. Edelmira Reynoso

Interim Executive Director


Dr. Edelmira Reynoso joined the HSU community on August 6, 2018, as an Associate Director. Edelmira began her career in the field of diversity, equity and inclusion over ten years ago working at the system level for the State University of New York (SUNY) inaugural’s Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (ODEI). As a Diversity Program and Research Associate she was responsible for the management of diversity programs and initiatives that provide funding opportunities to students, faculty, and staff throughout the 64-campus system. Edelmira worked directly with the Vice Chancellor and Chief Diversity Officer along with internal and external colleagues in various capacities to ensure the systemic implementation of the Strategic Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Policy – the first of its kind in the country.

An educator at heart, having teaching experience at the undergraduate level before working at SUNY System, she is deeply committed to advocating for students now as a research practitioner. By working collaboratively with faculty and staff, Edelmira is passionate about promoting a welcoming an equitable and inclusive environment.  

Edelmira received her Ph.D. in Sociology from the University at Albany, SUNY with specializations in demography and race and ethnicity. She attended and graduated from UC Santa Barbara where she double majored in Sociology and Spanish.

Edelmira enjoys hiking and loves exploring new hiking trails.
