Tito Luna joined the Division of Community Engagement as the neighborhood outreach director in August 2013. In this role, he serves as a liaison to VCU’s surrounding neighborhoods, working closely with a team of neighborhood representatives and the VCU Neighborhood Team. Luna helps link faculty, staff and students to opportunities for collaboration with neighborhoods and other community partners. A special focus is developing programs and activities that respond to community-identified needs, are mutually reinforcing, and connect VCU staff and students to the ideals of civic responsibility and reciprocity. Luna also has oversight of the VCU AmeriCorps program, which places 40 members in 10 Richmond public schools.
Through VCU's Council for Community Engagement, Luna works to develop and promote opportunities to increase eligible VCU employees' use of their community service leave hours and raises awareness of key community issues to foster the co-creation of solutions.
Luna's current community volunteer activities include serving on the board of directors of Ronald McDonald House Charities of Richmond and the selection committee for the R.E.B. Awards for Teaching Excellence.
