Carlos Burgos earned his BA in English from Hunter College, while publishing his first poetry collection and serving as a founding administrator at Guttman Community College, CUNY. His collective experiences - writing, facilitating workshops on identity, and founding a community college - came together as he was recruited to University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Education's MSEd in Higher Education program. For the next few years, he strategized towards doctoral studies by publishing a second poetry collection; working at Princeton University; being a human capital consultant at On-Ramps, LLC; and finally returning to Guttman as a Student Success Advocate.
