Bulaong Ramiz-Hall (re)joins the University of Kansas community as the Director of Emily Taylor Center for Women and Gender Equity after four and a half years away. Bulaong began her career in higher education administration as the program coordinator in the Office of Multicultural Affairs here at KU leaving after one year to work as the Assistant Director of Student Activities and Leadership Development at her alma mater Wesleyan University. Prior to returning to KU, Bulaong was most recently serving as the Director of the Multicultural Resource Center at Amherst College where she spent the last three years cultivating a unique and beautiful community centering students of color and radical justice. Bulaong believes that connection, community, and love is the root to our collective liberation though none of that is possible without the persistent push to dismantle oppressive systems and structures that limit our ability to thrive. She is deeply committed to growing a center where students can be both challenged and loved during their time at KU.
