Mike has been a part of the Student Services team since 2002. He has a strong background as a student services generalist, with more than two decades of experience in the field. His professional experience includes counseling, advisement, campus activities, advisement for international students, intramural sports, and staff training. At MCNY, Mike oversees the investigation and resolution of student conduct issues. Prior to his work in higher education, Mike spent ten years in social services, in such positions as child protective services caseworker for NYC Administration for Children's Services, and in various community based organizations as the coordinator of youth programs and latchkey program director. He earned an Associate degree in Human Services at LaGuardia Community College and a Bachelor of Arts in psychology at Hunter College.

Luis Alexander Restrepo, Coordinator of First Year Advisement and Student Development
I came to Metropolitan College of New York from Rutgers University and John Jay College, where I worked as an academic advisor, a student success program manager and a student outreach coordinator.
I studied at Lehman College, earning a BA in Anthropology and later at Baruch College where I earned a M.S.Ed. in Education, specializing in Higher Education Administration. How does all of this bring me to working as a first year advisor at MCNY?
Every professional experience I had seems to have led me to human services, counseling, advising, helping people, encouraging them to first help identify their dreams, then draw out the map to implement and to actualize them. I am thrilled to be here as a first year advisor where I can help Metropolitan College students navigate their way through the maze of educational options, clarify and reach their goals.
I look forward to meeting you soon!
