Office of Study Away – We’ve moved.

wku study awayThe Office of Study Away is a unit of Extended Learning & Outreach.  The office manages Study Away, American Traveler, and Faculty-Led Study Abroad programs, along with the National Student Exchange.

We partner with faculty and academic departments to develop and administer innovative learning opportunities within the US and around the world.

New Location — The Office of Study Away is now located in Tate Page Hall 104.  Our team includes Rebecca Schwartz, Study Away coordinator, and Erin Greunke, Faculty-Led Study Abroad coordinator, who last year supported faculty and over 640 participants in 60 study abroad and study away programs.

With this move to WKU, three CCSA staff members join us in the Study Away office.  Robin Byerly is the program coordinator and has been with CCSA for many years.  Robert Bedard joins CCSA as the Accounts Coordinator.  Dave Nelson joins CCSA as the data specialist.  While the CCSA team works exclusively on CCSA programs, we hope to build connections between our WKU programs and CCSA in areas such as professional development and training from which all program leaders will benefit.
