From helping students investigate study abroad options to assisting faculty in planning their own programs, I get great satisfaction from working with all members of the campus community to support global learning.

Education

Lillian holds a BA in Anthropology from Linfield College in McMinnville, Oregon and a MS in College Student Services Administration from Oregon State University. In addition to having work experience in three countries, Lillian is a Fulbright Alumna, having participated in a Fulbright International Education Administrators Seminar to Germany in 2013.

Travel Experience

My first time away from North America was as a participant on a study abroad program that looked at the pre-history and history of Ireland. That January spent on the Emerald Isle made me realize that it was possible to leave my comfort zone and it started me on a path to explore the whole world!
