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.

Rock Chalk!
