Office of Multicultural Affairs - UW-Superior

August 2012 marks the start of my 16 year at UW-Superior with the Office of Multicultural Affairs.  My role as Multicultural Student Services Specialist is to assist students in their academic career and personal growth.  I help students connect with faculty, staff, other students, departments, on and off campus mentoring opportunities, and programs that make a difference for themselves and our communities.   I also set up awareness programs on American Indian, African American, Hispanic and Asian American culture and issues throughout the year.

A little about me:  My heritage includes Grand Portage Ojibwe, African American, Polish, German, Dutch, Scottish and English.  I am proud to be a part of each.  My favorite job in higher education is working with students.  I believe that when one gains an education they are not only benefitting themselves but also their own communities.
