The Division of Equity, Diversity, Inclusion and Support Programs highlights Dan Colleran for the Divisional Employee Spotlight!
It is no exaggeration to say that Dan is at the heart of study abroad at UW-Whitewater. He advises students wanting to study abroad and helps students through the ins and outs of program, university, and travel requirements. He prepares students for learning and safety, and helps them process upon return. He also handles emergencies with incredible grace and calm, as demonstrated with the recall of all students abroad in Spring 2020.
Dan started and organizes the annual Photo Contest, and is a regular in supporting and promoting internationalization and diversity across campus.
Finally, Dan is a true mentor to the Office of Global Experiences (OGE) staff and student workers. When you consider all of the ways Dan helps those around him, he has a lasting positive impact on so many people.
Please join us as we congratulate and celebrate Dan Colleran.
