​Tula Marin, M.A., P.P.S.C.
Director of TRIO DSPS
(760) 396-2152

 I am the TRiO DSPS Director. I am also an advisor for TRiO Club and Alas con
Futuro. I am excited to be able to work with each and every single one of you.
I have worked within Federal TRiO grants for 9 years, and my passion is creating student success and building a TRiO family. I started in the field of education as an AVID Tutor, then became an Earth Science Teacher, Counselor, Coordinator and now TRiO Director. Each experience has been wonderful because I have enjoyed the opportunity to work with students and share my story and experiences. For my own education, I attended the University of Redlands for my Bachelor’s Degree in Liberal Studies and minor in Physical Education. After my Bachelor’s Degree, I continued at University of Redlands where I earned my Master’s Degree in Counseling. I attended San Diego State University for additional courses to enhance my experiences in community college counseling.
I am a true believer of and am passionate about Higher Education. Many of you have seen me on campus when I was the TRiO EVC Coordinator, Counselor, and Project Director. I was previously located at the Mecca Thermal Campus serving TRIO EVC students for the last four years. I am very excited to be able to join TRiO DSPS SSS.

Instructional Support Specialist
(760) 636-7974

I am thrilled to return to a TRiO- SSS program as the Instructional Support Specialist. Before I transferred to University of California, Santa Barbara I served as a Student Worker for TRiO-EVC.  I was born and raised in the Coachella Valley and attended College of the Desert where I completed my general education. At UCSB I graduated with a double major in Sociology and Feminist Studies and a minor in Educational Studies with Applied Psychology. As a product of TRiO-ACES, I am eager to give back to a similar program and assist students that exhibit the drive, dedication and perseverance to earn a college degree. My next goal in my life is to attend graduate school and work towards becoming an educational counselor to further assist students in achieving their academic goals.
