Greg Tuke

Greg Tuke is a Fulbright Fellow and teaches courses focused on contemporary social problems in a global context within the Pre-major program at the University of Washington-Bothell.  His expertise is in designing courses so that students acquire a more complex understanding of global issues through problem-solving directly with other university students living in other countries.  He has traveled extensively, working with students and faculty across the world, including India, Iraq, Peru, South Africa, Morocco and Vanuatu.  He specializes in helping students dramatically improve their ability to communicate effectively using student-produced videos and live video conferencing across cultures. He has 25 years of experience leading non-profit education organizations in the NW. He is the past Executive Director of three organizations; Powerful Schools, a Seattle-based education-reform organization, Bridges to Understanding, an international organization that builds cross-cultural organization through digital story-telling, and The Social Justice Fund, a foundation that funds social change organizing in 5 western states. He has a particular interest in the Middle East, and served as the Global Citizen Corps Manager for Mercy Corps, designing and leading cross-cultural virtual exchanges among Middle East students and activists, and US students. He currently leads Tuke International Consulting, providing faculty training workshops nationally and internationally on strategies for embedding virtual exchanges and international collaborations within university courses.
