Roe Cantu

Administrative Coordinator, University College (UColl)

I served six years active duty in the United States Army while stationed at Fort Bragg, North Carolina prior to moving to Texas with my husband and son.  I spent time in the 82nd Airborne Division and then in 4th Psychological Operations Group and did two combat tours (9 months each) to Afghanistan, the first in 2005 and second in 2008.  My MOS (military occupational specialty) was 45B and then later I transferred my primary MOS to 37F which provided me an opportunity to attend and train at the John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center and School.  As a Sergeant in the Army I filled multiple roles to include management responsibilities as Product Development Detachment Team Leader, inventory accountability as Arms Room NCO (Non-Commissioned Officer), and administrative responsibilities in headquarters as the Company Training and Readiness NCO. 

I received a bachelor’s degree from Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi in 2014 with a minor in Professional and Technical Writing and was hired as an Administrative Associate IV for the College of Science and Engineering Academic Advising Center.  In 2018 I was hired into University College as a Project Coordinator, serving multiple areas with administrative support while the college developed, but mainly supported the FYLCP Coordinator with learning community schedule building for each term.  Now an Administrative Coordinator, I continue to serve multiple areas of University College with administrative support while supporting the First-Year Learning Community Program with the schedule building process.
