Rachel Brown, WIC Learning Community Coordinator
“I’m passionate about experiential education because it is a unique way to connect what one is learning with what one is living, allowing those lessons to go so much deeper and be retained for so much longer than might be possible in a typical classroom setting.”
Rachel Brown joined the Wheaton in Chicago program staff as the WIC Learning Community Coordinator in the Fall of 2014. She earned a B.A. from Hope College and M.A.s in Christian Ministry and English Literature from Abilene Christian University, where she also worked in the Center for International Education, most recently as the Assistant Director of Study Abroad.
Her own time studying abroad in college was influential for her life not only by allowing her some incredible opportunities to see and meet people from other parts of the world, but also by informing her career choices as an advocate for experiential education.
She loves reading, traveling, watching movies, drinking coffee, and (as a true Midwesterner at heart) going to the lake.
