Academic Advising Programs

Brianna Ellis

Equity Initiatives Coordinator

Brianna was born and raised in the Chico community, graduating from CSU, Chico in 2010 with a degree in Social Science. While attending Chico State, she worked in a number of campus programs and departments, where she confirmed a career in higher education was in her future.  After graduating, she moved onto San Diego State University, earning an M.A. in Educational Leadership, with an emphasis in Student Affairs. From there, Brianna worked at Mount Saint Mary’s University, in Los Angeles, coordinating leadership and transition programs for first-year, primarily first-generation students. Brianna returned to Chico State in 2015. She often works closely with historically underserved populations, guiding students to success throughout the college process, and has forged relationships with many campus support programs. With a focus on equity, she is excited to do much of the same within Academic Advising Programs.
