Veterans Outreach Specialist
Dennis Torres is a two-time Iraq combat veteran with eight years of service within the Selective Marine Corps Reserve, specializing within the communications field. During his time in the corps, he earned a BA in Labor Studies from Hofstra University, and an MA in Industrial Psychology from Adelphi University.
Since completing his service, Dennis spent two-and-a-half years as a Veterans Specialist with New York City's Workforce1 – Veteran Priority1 program, specializing in assisting veterans and their spouses find employment.
After gaining invaluable skills with Workforce1, he searched for an organization that would grant him the opportunity to give back to fellow veterans. CUNY-Queens College has made that dream come true while permitting him to use what he learned from his master's degree. Striving to assist veterans, military personnel, and dependents in pursuing their academic and civilian careers, he has brought ambition and energy to the campus, spurring growth in the Veterans Support Office.
Dennis is a proud uncle of eight nieces and nephews and enjoys playing indoor soccer, and cycling.
