Christine Lupella

Christine Lupella was recognized as the 2012-2013 Communicating Arts Department Inclusive Excellence Award Winner.


A deserving award for a dedicated Christine, the inclusive excellence award recognizes a student whose life in the classroom, department and across campus personifies excellence in teaching, learning, and living inclusively. 

Kim Rawson, Senior Lecturer in the Communicating Arts Department, recommended Christine for the award. "She is a dedicated student, who visibly performs in ways that examines and celebrates issues and experiences of diversity, inclusion and equity. Moreover, her interaction with other students is exemplary, encouraging and worthy of imitation," she said.


Christine, an individually designed major of Communication Process, is a caring individual at heart. As the Senior Marketing Communications Manager for the Jewish United Fund in Chicago and volunteer Chicago Public Schools reader, her choice to come to UW-Superior to finish her degree was easy. The personal attention Christine received and the ability she had to apply her work experiences toward her degree, made UW-Superior a perfect fit. "The individually designed major allowed me to design my own major around my strengths and experience, as well as explore areas of interest," she said.


Life in the classroom has been an interesting ride for Christine. Traveling by train four days a week for three hours to work, the ride has become her moving classroom allowing her to fit classes into her busy life. The journey has been worth it, as she has enjoyed her instructors who have made her learn to look at and experience the world differently.
