Headshot of Mishka Murad

Before coming to CIE, I worked in Pakistan, Thailand and Mexico developing interdisciplinary academic curricula, teaching, as well as doing training and program development.


Since graduating from UMASS Amherst in 2021, I have worked in Residential Life at Mount Holyoke College as the Area Coordinator for Community and Belonging, and as the Power & Equity Specialist in the Student Wellness Center at Dartmouth College. My most recent role at Dartmouth is as the Associate Director of Greek Life, where I serve as the advisor to the fraternities, the gender inclusive Greek council and the Student Societies on campus.


I am also the advisor to the Pakistan Students Association. My current role entails training over 200 student leaders and talking students through the conduct process. While I never saw myself working in the Office of Greek Life, I enjoy my work immensely, and that is because of all the new things I have learned, and the wonderful students I get to work with, and for.


In addition, I have been teaching part-time at North Shore Community College and have designed and offered courses on Public Speaking, Philosophy, and Interpersonal Communication. I am fortunate the college has allowed me to continue teaching virtually, because teaching has always been my first passion.


A fun fact about me is that in 2019, I was the first (and so far only!) Pakistani woman to compete in the CrossFit Games held in Wisconsin. At those Games, I was named the National Champion of Pakistan. The real win was that after I competed, I heard from Pakistani women who felt empowered to embark on their own CrossFit journeys.
