Welcome, Colleen!

I’m excited to share that Colleen McCoy has joined Wiki Education as our Communications and Outreach Coordinator. In her role, Colleen supports the development and implementation of communications across all departments, including outreach to new and ongoing partners. She also leads key projects for our Wikipedia Student Program’s Knowledge Equity initiative in partnership with the Mellon Foundation, manages our blog and social media channels, and will represent Wiki Education at conferences and webinars.

Colleen holds a bachelor’s degree in Spanish and International Studies, a bachelor’s degree in Integrated Strategic Communication, and a master’s degree in International Education Policy and Management with a graduate certificate in Latin American Studies. She brings nearly seven years of higher education experience at Vanderbilt University in both outreach and communications, first at Vanderbilt’s Center for Latin American, Caribbean, and Latinx Studies, and most recently in the Office of Undergraduate Education. In her previous positions, Colleen led public programming, created curricular resources and professional development workshops for K-16 educators, coordinated a national book award to celebrate diverse children’s literature, and developed external, internal, and executive communications.

In her free time, you’ll find Colleen planning new travels, trying to keep her Spanish skills from getting rusty, kayaking and hiking with her husband, and jumping into a new book.

Welcome to the team, Colleen!

  1. Bienvenida Colleen.

    Es grato saber de su vinculación para estrechar nuestras comunicaciones en español. A veces, en inglésno logro expresar con claridad lo que quiero preguntar. Tengo dudas que no siempre están en las ayudas de las herramientas.
