Kyle Wolfe is an Environmental Resources Engineering student at Cal Poly Humboldt. Prior to attending Cal Poly Humboldt, he studied in the Peralta Community College District in the Bay Area of California. There, he earned associate degrees in math, science, and language arts from Laney College, and additional associate degrees in biology and liberal arts: natural science at the College of Alameda. During his time at Laney College, Kyle helped teach biology students as an imbedded tutor. Over the COVID-19 Pandemic, Kyle helped to develop a summer course framework for teaching technology skills to disadvantaged and non-traditional students, which he later taught in collaboration with other students and faculty. This experience exposed Kyle to the digital divide in online education, and inspired him to become active as a student advocate for equitable teaching practices.
