A Voyage Around the World
Resident Director

Hana Dinku

Hana currently serves as a Residential Hall Director at Macalester College in St. Paul, MN. In her current position, her primary role is to create an inclusive, safe and learning oriented environment for residents.  She focuses on community building through a social justice lens and particularly enjoys engaging students in meaningful conversations about social identities and building relationships across differences. Hana received her BA in History and Geography from the University of Minnesota Duluth (10’) and received her Masters in Student Affairs Leadership from the University of St. Thomas (15’). This is Hana’s first voyage with Semester at Sea, but she has had the opportunity to travel to Mexico as part of a Witness for Peace delegation and has traveled to Ethiopia, Cuba, Italy, Greece, and Egypt as an undergraduate and graduate student. Hana describes her travels abroad as the most transformative experiences of her life! She is beyond ecstatic for the opportunity to embark on the Fall 2018 Voyage and looks forward to building a strong community with students, staff, faculty and crew members!
