Christine Munteanu

Assistant Director

Assistant Director

  • Where do you call home?
    • I grew up in New Jersey, and have lived in Chicago for the past ten years. Living in the same apartment for six years has really made it feel like home. I also consider Japan home, as that’s where my mom, grandmother, and extended family live.
  • What do you do at Northwestern?
    • As an Assistant Director in MSA, I work to support students of color and LGBTQ students through programming, advising, advocacy, and education, with a focus on the APIDA (Asian, Pacific Islander, and Desi American) community.
  • What groups/ committees/ communities are you a part of at NU?
    • Within MSA/CIC, I am part of the staff committees that oversee the InclusionNU Fund and plan the Summer Academic Workshop (SAW). Outside of CIC, I am part of the Wildcat Impact Awards committee, and co-chair of the newly formed APIDA Staff Affinity Group (ASAG), which seeks to build a sense of community and belonging among APIDA staff members at Northwestern. 
  • What are you passionate about?
    • I care deeply about engaging in individual moments and in building collective communities that validate and affirm our lived experiences and push towards critical consciousness.
  • What are some moments/ accomplishments/ projects that you have been proud of?
    • I get so much joy from seeing the sense of community and connection that has been built among APIDA students through programs like Solidari-Tea, the APIDA Book of the Quarter, and JubilAsian. 
  • Where can you be found around campus?
    • I’m usually in my office on the first floor of the Multicultural Center. Feel free to stop by!
  • What do you like to do in your spare time?
    • Playing tennis, reading, doing crosswords, and eating snacks!
