Alumni Profile

Alison Bottomley

Bachelor of Arts, 2012


Since my degree at Burman, I have gone on to work in development and humanitarian settings around the world in Yemen, Iraq, Uganda, Jordan and Syria. As a student, I never dreamed I would develop the skills and gain the experience I have now. But the professors at Burman, both in the International Studies (IS) program and other departments, believed in me before I realized my own strengths. Without a doubt, it is the mentoring and encouragement you received at Burman that is one of the best parts of the education offered there.”
