The Middlebury Institute Graduate School of International Policy and Management (GSIPM) is proud to welcome its newest staff member, Brooke Tunnacliffe.

About Brooke

Brooke has spent the past 15 years working in higher education, and still works part time at the Stanford Graduate School of Business.  She works at the Executive Education department, delivering week long certificate level programs to business and nonprofit executives.  During her five years at Stanford she has worked on programs such as World Economic Forum’s Program for Leadership and Sustainability, the Executive Program for Nonprofit Leaders, and the Impact Program for Arts Leaders, among many others.

Prior to Stanford, Brooke was at the Skoll Centre for Social Entrepreneurship at Said Business School (Oxford, UK).  Her focus was the Developing Talent portfolio – specifically student programming.  Much of her work involved delivering the Emerge Conference, which brings approximately 400 students to Oxford each year to learn from the best and brightest social entrepreneurs about their models for change and solutions to the world’s toughest social and environmental problems.  She was also responsible for the Conversations in Social Innovation speaker series, and for coordinating the Skoll Center Associate Fellowship, which gave 15 students a year a chance to pursue their passion for social entrepreneurship though mentoring and coaching.

Brooke started her career at the Institute for Not for Profit Management at Columbia Business School.  This department was later absorbed into the Executive Education department, though her focus continued to be working with nonprofit and social enterprise executives.  Her clients at Columbia included the NYPD, FDNY, the Rothschild Foundation, as well as numerous nonprofits in the New York City area. Brooke earned her BA in Organizational Behavior and Management/International Relations from Brown University and her MA in Organizational Psychology from Colombia University Teacher’s College.

Brooke will be working at MIIS part time, and spending the other half of her time either at Stanford or at home with her three year old son.  She is excited to join the MIIS community, and specifically to meet the FMS participants. She is inspired by working with students and professionals who strive to make the world a better place, and is looking forward to joining a community that is passionate about social change.

I hope you will join us in welcoming Brooke to Middlebury!
