Dženan joined UWC Mostar in 2007 as a young trainee teacher of History, graduating in 2006 from the University of Sarajevo. He has been employed at the College ever since, working as a house parent, CAS Coordinator Assistant, Model UN Supervisor and Curriculum Coordinator/Head of Academics (2011-2014). In his 12 years at UWC Mostar he has taught History, Peace and Conflict Studies, Global Politics and Theory of Knowledge. From 2013 to 2019 he held the position of the Head of the Department of Humanities and Social Sciences and in March 2019 assumed the position of the Acting Head of the College.

His passion for teaching humanities has involved him in different educational programs and projects, whether as a participant or a workshop leader.

"I was humbled by the opportunity to step into the position of the Acting Head of UWC Mostar. In my 12 years within the UWC movement I have never felt more need for the movement to take initiative than it is the case today, amidst the growing socio-economic, political and environmental challenges. The world we live in seems to be at the crossroad and our students may be the best chance for the world to be navigated toward the right path."
