MCC FOUNDATION Board of directors
Hina Agarwal arrived in Omaha during the summer of 2019 after spending most of her life in Chicago. She attended University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and received a BS in Bioengineering and a BS in Biochemistry. She followed up her undergraduate studies by earning her MS in Education at Northwestern University.
Hina taught high school science for fourteen years in the Chicago-land area and coached volleyball during ten of those years. During her years in the classroom, she presented at Northwestern University’s Annual STEM Summit, attended Seeds of Peace Camp for two weeks in Ottisfield ME, was a Fulbright Fellow in the Teachers for Global Classrooms Program, presented at NSTA & participated in Summer Research Experience for Teachers at Northwestern University.
She currently works as the Coordinator of CodeCrush at UNO, sits on the Diversity and Inclusion Committee for the College of IS&T and volunteers at the Intercultural Senior Center. As an educator, she has always had a passion for continuing education being accessible and available to all students with an interest in pursuing a post secondary degree. She believes that communities flourish and neighborhoods thrive when citizens are able to earn a living doing what they love and feel safe in their space. Education, for many, is the first step to that happiness and she is grateful to be a part of that journey for the students that attend MCC.
