Russel Altamirano is responsible for academic coordination, student enrolment, and the Vienna Master’s online learning platforms.
She is passionate about supporting students’ learning journeys in the Vienna Master as they engage in interdisciplinary critical dialogue and action to address global issues.
After completing her Art History degree at the University of California, Riverside, she worked as an educator in art museums and non-profits. Her dedication to expanding educational access, experiential learning opportunities, and intercultural exchange for learners of all ages led her to pursue a U.S. Fulbright Student Community-Based Combined Grant in Vienna, Austria in 2019-2020. During her grant year, Russel worked in secondary schools in Vienna, Kunsthalle Wien, and enrolled in university courses to support her independent research on social justice art education initiatives in museums.
