Alison Climes graduated from the University of Michigan with a BA in International Studies and Spanish in 2015. Her post-graduation journey took her from Santiago to Tucson to Monterey and now back to Ann Arbor, where she works as a Student Engagement Coordinator at the University of Michigan Ginsberg Center.
After graduation, Alison spent a semester teaching English through the English Opens Doors Program in Puente Alto, Chile which gave her the opportunity to practice her Spanish and gain further exposure to the world of education. She then returned to Michigan and taught a semester of high-school Spanish before moving to Tucson, Arizona, to work with a refugee education program for middle- and high-school youth. Her interest in comparative and international education, and education diplomacy programs inspired her to pursue a master's program at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies in Monterey, California, in International Education Management (IEM). During her Master's program, she led youth international exchange programs and completed her Master's degree in 2019.
In her current role at the University of Michigan Ginsberg Center, Alison aims to help students identify their own strengths and develop a strong sense of self while also working to become active citizens engaged in their communities and working towards social justice.
