Biography

Kristin Dybvig-Pawelko is the director of the Undergraduate Internship program for the Hugh Downs School of Human Communication.

She is passionate about helping students transition between their academic lives and their professional lives.  Additionally, Dr. Dybvig-Pawelko has been teaching Research Methods for many years and her focus is on translating complex theoretical concepts into practical applications and allowing students to utilize these complex concepts in their own lives. In both her roles with the Hugh Downs School, Dr. Dybvig-Pawelko looks for ways to connect the ideas learned in the classroom with the goals students have for their lives after graduation.
