Biography:

Andrea M.W. Dvorak is Assistant Director of Off-campus Studies in the Center for Global Education and Experience. In this role, she manages US and International semester study programs, including all advising efforts from first-step through matriculation. She directs CGEE’s assessment of curricular and co-curricular learning, leads faculty development, outreach and training around internationalization, and oversees online applications for the department. Over her nine years with CGEE, Andrea has served as liaison to the faculty, streamlined short-term program proposal processes, and lead risk assessment and emergency preparedness efforts.

Andrea’s professional interests include the application of intercultural development theory to student advising, orientation and re-entry and the intersection between environmental sustainability and study abroad. Andrea has presented at national and international conferences on topics ranging from faculty-led programming in STEM fields, working with DACA, graduate, and non-traditional students, and best practices using Studio Abroad, our online application software. She has also served as a consultant to area colleges and universities in their own implementation of Studio Abroad. In 2011, she co-authored an article entitled “Sustainability and Study Abroad: A Necessary Partnership,” published in Frontiers: An interdisciplinary journal of Study Abroad. She has been an active member of Augsburg University's Environmental Stewardship Committee since 2007, and has served as Sustainability Coordinator for NAFSA’s Region IV, as well as on The Forum on Education Abroad’s Task Force on Student Ethics. Prior to joining Augsburg, Andrea taught English in Krakow, Poland and worked in a higher education non-profit that focused on professional development for university faculty/staff. Andrea received her B.A. in History from the University of Minnesota-Morris, and her MA in Slavic Literature and Culture from University College London.
