Werklund School of Education
Leading Education for a Connected World
Colleen Kawalilak is excited. As new Associate Dean of the Werklund School of Education’s Office of Internationalization, she has hit the ground running. In her first year in the position, she’s developed a strategic plan that aligns closely with the University of Calgary’s international strategy; she’s travelled extensively, renewing established relationships and forging new ones; she’s held sessions for academic and support staff to discuss all things international, and to share listen to the range of international experience and expertise existing within the School; she’s reinvigorated a key travel abroad program for undergraduate students—a program that sets the Werklund School apart; and she’s done it all with a smile and sense of humour. Colleen sat down recently to chat about her plans for the office.
