Kimi Jackson ‘92 recently began her tenure as UWC-USA’s Associate Head for Finance and Operations. In her new role Kimi will oversee the school’s operations, including the business office, HR, IT, security, facilities, and our food service contract. She will also lead key elements of the school’s strategic plan, including major sustainability initiatives around energy, food, water, and campus infrastructure–all while keeping the financial foundation of the school sound and sustainable.
For the past eight years Kimi has been the director of the South Texas Pro Bono Asylum Representation Project (ProBAR) in Harlingen, Texas. Supervising a staff of nearly 200 attorneys and other staff, ProBar works with minors and adults who have been detained on the southern border to help them access the U.S. immigration system.
“For me, UWC-USA is where my desire to be a force for good in the world was sparked,” Kimi said, “and that desire to live the UWC mission has continued to this day. I am looking forward to applying my skills and experience to the challenges that currently face the school, and to be part of its journey into the coming decades. I am looking forward to returning to a community that was pivotal in my life and which I hold very dear.”
