About the Speaker:
Derric Bynum joined BPH in August 2023. Derric has worked in higher education for over 10 years, with eight of those working in admissions and recruitment. His love of working in higher education comes from interacting with, supporting, and inspiring students to pursue and persist in their educational journeys. “I deeply and personally understand that the road to and through students’ educational journey can oftentimes be difficult, and the support that students receive along the way can make or break student’s experience and sense of belonging during their time as a student. That is why I have found myself working in capacities that both encourage students to pursue their education and support during their education. In a way, these students inspire me to continue working in higher education,” says Derric. He earned his MA in higher education & student affairs from the University of San Francisco and received BAs both in sociology and African & African American studies from UC Davis. Derric is a Bay Area native, born and raised in San Jose, CA. In his free time Derric enjoys hiking, cooking, training at the gym, binge watching his favorite shows and movies, and watching NBA games (especially the Warriors) in his free time.
