Educator, Advisor, and Consultant in Topeka, KS
Hello! My name is Mario Porras.
I am an Assistant Director at the Undergraduate Advising Center. I started working at KU in June 2019.
I grew up in Topeka, KS and have been helping students for the past 17 years.
I have great admiration for TRiO programs because without their support I would not be where I am today. #trioworks
I am a first-generation college student and enjoy helping other first-gen students become successful.
I want students to understand they DO matter, they DO belong and are GOOD enough to be in college. I work hard to help students discover their passions and show them how to utilize the resources available to them.
I am married to the fabulous Dr. Precious Porras and we have an adorable furry child named Stella, a yellow labrador retriever.
Stop by and see me in Summerfield, 315.
