Miguel In Suk Lovato believes in child/youth-centered educational opportunities that foster curiosity, creativity, and critical thinking. He recognizes that factors that are often beyond the control of the child – including access to healthy food, stable and affordable housing, and mental health supports – have a profound effect not only on a child’s educational outcomes but on their long-term opportunities for personal and professional growth and overall success. Miguel is also a staunch advocate for solutions that are developed, owned, and driven by youth, families, and community members.

An Aurora Central High School graduate, Miguel was the first in his family to go to college and earn a degree. With support and guidance from advisors, counselors, and mentors, Miguel earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology and a master’s degree in curriculum and instruction from the University of Colorado Denver. He has worked directly with BIPOC youth and youth living on low incomes as a teacher, program manager, nonprofit director, and youth mentor. He has been on the founding boards of two charter schools – a high school in Denver and a K-8 school in Aurora. Before joining the foundation, Miguel managed the early childhood and adult recovery priorities for the Colorado Health Foundation and the early childhood, K-12 education reform, youth development program areas in New Mexico, and the K-12 education reform program area in Colorado for the Daniels Fund. He currently serves on the boards of Asian Girls Ignite, Boardhawk, the Colorado AAPI Giving Circle, Ednium, Vega Collegiate Academy, and YouthRoots.

Miguel is a father, husband, son, and brother. He enjoys riding and working on his motorcycle; taking walks with his wife, daughter, and dog Maslin; and “collaborating” with his home office co-worker Waffles the cat.
