Meet Anita: Champion of Intercultural Learning and Global Engagement!

By Juliana Mendes | Comunication Coordinator

Dear friends,

We want to express our heartfelt gratitude for your generous contribution. Your support is instrumental in our mission to protect and restore vital forest ecosystems, ensuring clean water for communities around the world.

Your donation directly impacts our efforts to conserve forests, enhance biodiversity, and promote sustainable water management. Through your commitment, we can continue to create a positive impact on both the environment and the lives of countless individuals.

As part of our commitment to showcasing the impactful work facilitated by your generosity, we would like to highlight the invaluable contributions of Anita Deeg-Carlin, a dedicated volunteer who has been instrumental in connecting Wesleyan University with our project.

Anita is the Director of Intercultural Learning at the Fries Center for Global Studies at Wesleyan University, and she’s absolutely amazing at what she does. She manages the Global Engagement Minor and teaches a fantastic Introduction to Global Engagement course. Students from all different majors flock to her class because she’s so passionate about helping them develop their intercultural competence.

Anita has this knack for creating meaningful programs that bring people together, both on campus and with partners around the world. She’s got a Master’s degree in Watershed Management and can speak five languages fluently – seriously, five! Her career is impressive too. She spent nearly a decade in Africa and Latin America, working on natural resource management, health, and education initiatives. She was deeply involved in Participatory Rural Appraisal, which really highlights her commitment to community involvement and sustainable practices.

Before she brought her talents back to the US, she worked at Fairfield University, Trinity College, and Mount Holyoke College, always finding new ways to innovate intercultural programming. Everywhere she goes, she leaves a lasting impact, helping students prepare for global careers with a strong sense of cultural understanding.

Anita is not just a colleague; she's a friend who inspires everyone around her with her dedication, warmth, and genuine desire to make the world a more connected place. She’s the kind of person who makes you feel valued and heard, and we're so lucky to know her!

Be a part of the change, like Anita!
