Alyssa Reed

She/her/hers Executive Assistant, International Affairs, The University of Kansas

I’ve worked in educational settings for over a decade and my passion is engaging people from other cultures, particularly those from refugee backgrounds. Because I have a master’s degree in TESOL, I’ve had many experiences teaching adult refugees and every one of them has greatly enriched my life. I continue to find ways to welcome, engage with, and assist refugee newcomers. Some of these activities include serving on the Board for Assistance for Immigrants and Refugees to assist in resettling refugee families in Lawrence, being a point of contact for Afghan students, and serving as the NAFSA Kansas Representative.
