Dr. Joseph L. Lewis

Student Services Advisor

 

How many years have you been employed at El Camino College Compton Center?

15 years of service

Where did you get your BS/BA degree?

Double BA Degree:  Sociology and Economics from UC Santa Barbara

Where did you get your Master's degree?

Master of Science Degree in Human Services/Organizational Management and Leadership from Springfield College, School of Human Services

Doctoral Degree in Education/Organizational Leadership from Pepperdine University

Where did you work before coming to El Camino College Compton Center?

Executive Director of a Non-Profit Organization called Sunrise Youth Service Center, Inc. providing youth leadership development services in the city of Compton and in Los Angeles

Why did you choose this career? 

Education and human services has always been a passion of mine; and because of that, I chose to work in the community college system in order to assist young people to achieve their "Right of Passage" academic experience and transfer to a four year college or university, and/or acquire vocational training in preparation to join the work force.  In essence, it's almost like a progressive youth and adult enrichment center, much like what I did before.

What advice do you have for students to be successful?

My advice to students is simple: Sacrifice breeds success.  Acquiring knowledge and skills necessary to be a successful contributor to your family and society requires some sacrifices.  But when it is all said and done, understand that with knowledge comes power, and with power comes great responsibility.  Always consider the abundance of possibilities, and most importantly, remain humble.
