Amy Brewster

Director of Global Experiences & Academic Advisor

I am thrilled to work in the College of Engineering as the Director of Global Experiences and Academic Advisor. As an advisor, I work with first-year and undeclared students. I enjoy meeting with our wonderful students; helping them get the most out of their time here at the University of Iowa and connecting them with resources across campus. My role includes coordinating the College of Engineering Honors Program and collaborating with the University Honors Program. Additionally, I lead the development and support of global experiences, including: learning abroad and support for international students.

After earning my bachelor’s degree at the University of Iowa, I worked at a consulting firm in Chicago before serving as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Bulgaria. After the Peace Corps, I moved to the Twin Cities and worked at the University of Minnesota in advising and advising administration roles and earned a master’s degree in Educational Policy and Administration. It’s great to be back at the University of Iowa and to be a part of the College of Engineering!
