Ohio State staff member strives to further diversity and inclusion across university

Cesar Seguil, within the College of Education and Human Ecology, goes above and beyond daily in modeling Ohio State’s values to advance inclusive excellence. Through his commitment to the university’s vision, he makes a difference in the lives of students.

As Director of Academic Services in the Department of Teaching and Learning, Cesar supports current and prospective graduate international students, domestic students, students from underrepresented populations and adult learners with full time jobs. Under Cesar’s leadership, the department has increased the number of students from underrepresented populations.

“I love that the department attracts a very diverse group of people,” said Cesar. “It’s crucial to create inclusive spaces and connect with people who are different than you, and we do that very well in the College of Education and Human Ecology.”

Cesar, who moved to the United States from Lima, Peru, at age nine, is passionate about going the extra mile for diverse students. His primary goal is ensuring their success by making them feel welcome, comfortable and valued at Ohio State.

Cesar’s colleagues recognize the key role he plays in recruiting prospective students and advocating on behalf of current students. He advises prospective students on their journey to join the university and interprets policies for faculty and staff. In his work with current students, he helps them to navigate course work and university procedures.

Cesar’s dedication to ensuring student success has earned him a notable mentor reputation and a 2017 Distinguished Staff Award. He is widely praised for his ability to solve problems, answer questions and provide a friendly, dependable environment for Ohio State students.

Cesar graduated from Ohio State in 2005 with a bachelor’s degree in Spanish. He accepted a full-time position in the Department of Teaching and Learning upon graduation, and has since earned his master’s degree in Adult Education and Development.

He commends his team of four for their continuous excellence, and attributes his success to fellow Ohio State faculty and staff.

“My team is nothing short of amazing,” he said. “I’m also fortunate to have great mentors and great leaders.”

His drive to continue making a difference compelled Cesar to join the University Staff Advisory Committee (USAC) in 2016. Within USAC, Cesar works with the Office of Diversity and Inclusion and the Women’s Place to educate staff about the importance of inclusion. One of Cesar’s proudest accomplishments is presenting USAC diversity and inclusion initiatives to President Michael V. Drake.

As a proud Buckeye, Cesar takes pride in being part of a world-renowned university.

“I love how much the nation looks to Ohio State, and to be part of an institution that is held on a pedestal is incredible,” he said. “It’s amazing being a small part of something huge that impacts so many lives.”
