Christina believes strongly in the transformative power of international education as an important component of any academic plan. She was drawn to this work when she studied abroad for the first time as an undergraduate student in London. It was during this time that she realized the profound importance of multicultural and global understanding in an ever-changing and complex world. She has since traveled and assessed programs extensively across the globe and is dedicated to helping Williams students determine the best possible semester study away options for them. The office works hard to provide quality advising and programming for Williams students at every step of the process.

 

Isabel Hansen

Assistant Director

International Education and Study Away

Hopkins Hall, Room 210D

 

Isabel earned her bachelor’s degree in business management from Saint John Fisher College in Rochester, NY, and is currently in the process of obtaining her master’s degree in International Education Management/Leadership at The University at Albany. Prior to coming to Williams, Isabel worked at The College of Saint Rose in Albany, NY as their Assistant Director of Study Abroad.

While she was an undergraduate, Isabel studied abroad in Perth, Australia for a semester. This transformative experience is what led her to become an advocate for study away in order to help and encourage as many others to take advantage of this amazing opportunity offered during their college careers. While studying away may seem overwhelming at first, the International Education and Study Away office can be a great resource for students. Please feel free to contact Isabel with any questions or concerns throughout any stage of the study away process!


We also have a team of 5 Global Ambassadors who are campus representatives of the International Education and Study Away office! They are at many of our events and are happy to speak with students about the study away experience. Information about each student is on our Global Ambassador page.
