MUSCATINE, Iowa–A passion for youth development has always marked Krista Regennitter’s work. For the past five and a half years, Regennitter has helped children and their families thrive as the director of Iowa State University Extension and Outreach. Now, Regennitter looks forward to exploring a new avenue of youth development by serving as the program officer for global education at the Stanley Center for Peace and Security.

During her time with ISU Extension and outreach, Regennitter valued forging partnerships that gave Muscatine area youth and families new opportunities. “I enjoyed working with community leaders, volunteers, families, youth, and others to make Mustactine a better place to live, work, and play,” said Regennitter.

As the Stanley Center’s program officer for global education, Regennitter hopes to continue developing these collaborations while doing what she enjoys most, creating meaningful educational programs for children. Asked to extensively update the Stanley Center’s global educational programming to encourage global citizenship both here and across the world, Regennitter will use both local input and international research on global citizenship education to create engaging and effective programs that will benefit young people. Regennitter will also find ways to integrate her programs with other Stanley Center offerings.

With Regennitter just beginning her work, she looks forward to using all the resources that Stanley Center has to offer to help encourage youth to become good global citizens. “I am thrilled to be a part of the Stanley Center team and to participate fully in its impressive work,” she stated. “I feel there is a unique opportunity to leverage the Center’s knowledge of global policy in our three issue areas (mitigating climate change, avoiding the use of nuclear weapons, and preventing mass violence and atrocities) to create learning opportunities at the local level.”

Reginetter also welcomes opportunities to engage with local teachers and students both to help her develop strong programs and to help them learn more about global citizenship. “Our world is more interconnected than ever, and I believe that youth and adults need to build global awareness and understanding to take advantage of all the opportunities our globalized society provides,” she explained. “I am excited to be a part of a team that will bring such opportunities to Muscatine.”

In turn, the Stanley Centers has high hopes for what Reginetter will accomplish with them. “Reimagining our local global education programming with a new strategy built for tomorrow’s global citizens is a top priority for the center,” emphasized Stanley Center President Keith Porter. “Krista’s knolwedge of our community and the Center’s role in global policy areas are a match that will make that priority achievable.”
