Dawn Cripe



Distance Education Coordinator, Women's and Gender Studies
Adjunct Instructor WGST
M.A. in Communication, UNO


Dawn has been teaching for seven years at UNO, in both WGST and Communication. Her courses range from speech, media writing and Gender & Leadership (3020) to WGST Humanities (2020), in-class and online, and Gender & Communication (3750), soon to be offered online!

To complement her teaching, she has over 10 years experience in sales and marketing with a Fortune 100 Company and has hands-on experience in corporate “retail sales” communications. She only wished she knew early in her career path that teaching was her passion, but she is glad to be at UNO and teaching in the WGST program. Her teaching philosophy is that students take what they learn in her courses “outside the walls, whether brick and mortar or virtual walls”, and use it in their personal and professional lives. Her other passion is her family: her partner of 12 years and a two-year-old son, Jack, who thinks daycare “IS” college.
Her hero: Alice Paul!
