The Division of Student Life welcomes Kimiya Shokri ’19 as the Assistant Director for the Delphine Intercultural Center.

Kimiya Shokri (she/her) is a Bay Area born and raised Iranian American educator and creator, committed to creating equitable spaces for and centering the voices of her students. She is an alumna of Saint Mary’s College, where she graduated summa cum laude with a double major BA in English and Theatre. She has been teaching acting courses at Saint Mary's, and has developed and taught curriculum rooted in social justice work and social emotional learning with students from kindergarten to college age at American Conservatory Theatre, Berkeley Repertory Theatre, California Shakespeare Theater, and more. Kimiya is passionate about building community through the lens of ensemble—the idea that we are all in this together, and can build trust and respect for one another through acknowledgement of what unites us and celebration of what makes us different. In her free time, Kimiya loves to cook improvisationally, read new books, and enjoy a cup of ginger tea while geeking out over her favorite shows and movies.

Meet and greet is scheduled Friday, March 31 at the IC from 12–1 p.m. Come by to say hi!
