Calli Thompson

Calli joined the International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) team in the Summer of 2017 as she returned to Minnesota to start her graduate studies at the U of M in the fall. She's working towards a masters in Comparative and International Development Education with a minor in Program Evaluation.

Calli completed her B.S. in Botany, Conservation Biology, and Environmental Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. UW-Madison is where she first got involved with international students when she joined BRIDGE, an international friendship program. She had many opportunities to study, intern, and travel abroad, and she later worked for International Student Services (ISS) as the BRIDGE program coordinator.

Calli has had the opportunity to live all over the country and travel to many different places around the world. She greatly enjoys finding out where others call home and why, hearing their stories, and discussing shared and differing life views. In her free time, she enjoys cooking and eating, being active (whether it's outdoors or at the gym), exploring free things to do around the Twin Cities, and traveling (both near and far).
