Anthony Garrison-Engbrecht | Director of Leadership Programs and LGBT Student Services 

Anthony is originally from Wichita, Kansas, and has worked at LMU for the past seven years. He has a B.A. in Sociology from Loyola University New Orleans, an M.A. in Educational Psychology from Pepperdine University, an M.A. of Theological Studies from Loyola Marymount University, and is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Education, Curriculum and Culture from Chapman University. In his current role in SLD, Anthony supports leadership development and student advocacy through working with ASLMU, Off Campus Student Life, LGBT Student Services, and the Ignatian Leadership Institute. He also supports the Division of Student Affairs through aiding in the coordination of the LMU EXP. Anthony says his favorite part of working with students is, “Being able to help support them in their own development in becoming the best versions of themselves… and learning about new catch phrases and hashtags. #squadgoals.” A fun fact about Anthony is that he pole vaulted in high school, and in 2003 held the Kansas 3A Boys Pole Vault record with a jump of 15-00.00’!
