Featuring Diversity Clues Team Members: Michael Yue
Michael has over 20 years of combined experience in education and career services. His expertise is in project development and management, collaborative partnership, and creative educational programming. Throughout his career life, he has initiated many new projects with very successful outcomes and has been well regarded by colleagues and community partners as a leader in the field. He has worked in various organizational environments, including non-profit, corporate, and public postsecondary education.
One of Michael’s professional and personal passions is in helping immigrants overcome their integration challenges. He believes that the successful integration of immigrants is the responsibility of all service agencies and sectors, instead of just the ones specializing in immigrant services. He calls for more cooperation between agencies and practitioners to share expertise and experience so that immigrants can be better served by a community of well-informed professional helpers.
