Hey! Here's someone important.

Hey everyone!  Meet Dina Wolf:

Dina works at UWM as a K-16 Outreach Coordinator for the Institute of World Affairs in the Center for International Education (CIE).  She has collaborated with multiple units and departments on campus and in the community in developing globally focused workshops, trainings, and conferences for students within various age groups.  Dina helps with the Wisconsin High School Model United Nations (WHSMUN), where 700 students from Southeast Wisconsin participate in a two-day simulated United Nations conference.

Dina has over 20 years of experience working with youth and young adults in developing activities and opportunities for them to experience and deepen their understanding of a wide range of global issues, regions, and cultures.  Dina has majored in Global Studies with an emphasis on Spanish Languages and Culture and Southeast Asian Studies.  Dina also participated in a young professional vocational exchange through Rotary International’s Group Study Exchange program for five weeks in Daegu, South Korea.

Dina will be able to help you by offering opportunities to volunteer as facilitators for the workshops and conferences that are offered in high school and middle school students on campus.  Dina also works with university students that are interested in being an intern for the Institute of World Affairs.  Dina also has research skills in helping students use their abilities and values in writing cover letters, developing a resume, scholarship applications, and/or seeking out global opportunities.

Dina is a wonderful resource for the Global Villagers.
