Eric Wilson

Director of Communications & Marketing

Eric graduated with his B.A. in Sociology from Vanguard University of Southern California in Costa Mesa, CA. He is currently a student at Hennepin Tech, studying Graphic and Web Design. During his college years at VUSC he was heavily involved with Students for Social Action. After graduation, Eric served in the Peace Corps in Costa Rica, where he worked on a variety of youth development projects including sexual health education, leadership development, and after school arts programs. When his Peace Corps service came to an end, Eric moved to Minnesota to join Minnesota GreenCorps, an AmeriCorps program that aims to preserve and protect Minnesota’s environment. This led to an interest in food systems, where for a number of years Eric had the opportunity to work as a marketing manager with local farmers, food shelves, and mobile grocery programs. 

Eric continues to be inspired by this new generation of college students - their passion for inclusivity and change. He is most excited to hear and share their stories and experiences. 

Eric enjoys paddle boarding, biking, gardening, and adventuring with his partner and dog. He is a bookworm; always looking for the next best Sci-Fi story and loves a good murder-mystery podcast.
