Katharine Diamond

Outreach Specialist, CIRTL

I work with CIRTL (the Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching and Learning; www.cirtl.net), where I provide support for the online courses, events, and workshops we run for STEM grad students and postdocs across the country. I also assist with our communications and outreach. The CIRTL mission is to enhance excellence in undergraduate education through the development of a national faculty committed to implementing and advancing effective teaching practices for diverse learners as part of successful and varied professional careers.

Prior to joining CIRTL in the summer of 2015, my professional and academic work focused on international relations, global development, and US political campaigns. In 2006, I received my bachelors from Simmons College, where I majored in international relations and minored in French. In 2012, I received my masters from George Washington University, where I studied international security policy with focuses in transnational security and weapons of mass destruction.

While my professional and academic careers have been wide-ranging, my interest in advancing inclusive, equitable practices that lift up underrepresented and marginalized voices has been a driving force in every position I've held.
