Greetings Cortinians and Happy Summer!
My name is Kate Macan and as a former Cortinian and a Creighton grad, I feel blessed and honored to be a new member of your community. While at Creighton, I studied theology and Spanish and minored in Justice and Peace Studies. I was abroad for a semester in the DR, passed many wonderful hours facilitating ESL courses in the Omaha community and spent my mornings on Carter Lake with the Crew team.
Following my graduation, I volunteered with Cap Corps Midwest in Managua, Nicaragua from 2009-2011. I worked with underprivileged youth in an inner-city neighborhood teaching English courses, facilitating retreats and after school activities. Most recently, I was working on a master’s degree in theological studies at the University of Notre Dame.
I very much look forward to the conversations we will have this year, as we consider issues of power, privilege, and injustice. I look forward to being a resource for you in your journey at Creighton and beyond.
Be well. I’ll be seeing you soon!
