UW-Madison alum Brent profiled by La Crosse Tribune

November 07, 2016

The La Crosse Tribune recently profiled UW-Madison alumna Bethany Brent to talk about her efforts as the senior multicultural education advisor at UW-La Crosse's School of Education. 

Brent received her Ph.D. from the UW-Madison School of Education’s No. 1-ranked Department of Curriculum and Instruction in 2013.

The La Crosse Tribune report explains how Brent has created a program called Grow Our Own Teacher Diversity, serving the needs of people that desire to become teachers but have lacked the financial and social support to do so. Brent works closely with students inside and outside the UW-La Crosse School of Education, Professional and Continuing Education. 

The article quotes Brent as saying, “So, I stand on the shoulder of giants. It is now my responsibility to ‘reach back as I climb,’ and make a difference in the lives of other people, especially those who also come from humble beginnings. I am motivated by what seems impossible. It is in this space where I lead.”
