Nina comes to MIT after 13 years at Bentley University. She worked in a number of student affairs roles including student conduct and new student orientation. Additionally, she’s advised myriad of student groups including the Portuguese Across the Continents, Black United Body, and the Cape Verdean Student Association. Nina will manage the Office of Multicultural Programs daily operations. Additionally, DeAgrela will help direct the creation, implementation, and assessment of social justice programming and education opportunities on campus through lectures, workshops, and events, and establish opportunities for structured dialogue among students. Born and raised in southeastern Massachusetts, DeAgrela has a passion for connecting students to purpose and then helping them “thrive, not just survive.” Her concern for students managing rigorous academics and unexpected life events stems from her own experience as a first-generation college student.
