Wailly Comprés Henríquez ’18
Wailly was born and raised in Moca, Dominican Republic; after moving to the United States, he is happy to call Washington Heights in New York City home. He recently earned a BA in philosophy with a concentration in Latin American and Iberian Studies (LAIS) from Bard College in 2018. He began his professional higher education experience as the BEOP postbaccalaureate fellow for the 2018–19 academic year, and hopes further develop his higher education background as the new academic adviser for the Office of Equity and Inclusion. Wailly's academic and personal advising approach is informed by his skills as a student leader for affinity groups and community organizing groups at Bard. He is passionate about sharing his experiences with student organizations at Bard and its international network. He is the most excited to work with first-year students and share his insight to assist with the process of making Bard a home for the next BEOP community members.
