Farewell Lisa Brown

The Office of Education Abroad bids a fond farewell to Lisa Brown, our first official Study Abroad Advisor. Lisa joined Case Western Reserve University in September of 2011 and has been instrumental in establishing the solid education abroad program at CWRU.  Lisa will be leaving CWRU to work at Mary Baldwin College in Staunton, Virginia and be closer to her husband, who teaches Geology 25 minutes away at James Madison University.  At Mary Baldwin, she will be the Assistant Director of the Spencer Center for Civic and Global Engagement. She will be advising study abroad students, coordinating international student orientation, and teaching English as a Second Language.

We asked Lisa what her favorite part of working at CWRU was, and she said it has definitely been working with the students. She replied, "CWRU students are intelligent, passionate, driven, and responsible; they are just a delight to work with.  I'll miss them so much."
Well, Lisa Brown, we will miss you, too! If anyone would like to stop by and wish her farewell in person, Lisa will be in the Office of Education Abroad in Tomlinson Monday through Thursday during normal business hours until July 11th

To read more about Lisa you can read her 5 questions with the Case Daily.

Spring Semester 2015 in London with RADA
For over 100 years RADA has specialized in professional training for the dramatic arts. RADA students spend very little time sitting around in lectures: the skills of the actor, the stage manager, the scenic artist need to be practiced to achieve expertise. The staff combines excellence as teachers, with continued engagement in the profession: winning awards, directing movies, publishing books and working with major producers, both in the UK and abroad.  CWRU has partnered with RADA to offer a full spring semester course of study, in London.  This is a CWRU "IN" program, which means students will register through CWRU for this semester abroad. 
Visit our website to learn more about this exciting program.
