Alexzandra Wallace, Graduate Fellowship

Graduate Fellowship, 2018

Alexzandra Wallace graduated with a B.S. in 2009 and is currently (5-2018) in a two-year Masters Program in Learning and Organizational Change in the School of Education and Social Policy. She recognized the early importance of access to quality education and has devoted her career to developing experiential learning opportunities for K-12 students who attend the University of Chicago’s Charter and Laboratory schools. Most notably, she created the Internship for Civic Engagement through a partnership with the University of Chicago’s Office of Civic Engagement. This program emphasizes leadership development for students in the context of community-based learning. Her goal is to “empower students to think critically, problem solve, and become agents of change.”
