Ryan Larsen, he/him/his

Associate Executive Director, Institute for Global Engagement


Ryan studied abroad for a year at a university in Central America with the help of federal financial aid (Pell Grant and student loans), and he has been hooked on study abroad since then. He lived in Japan as a child, worked at a university in Spain, and has traveled on every continent except Antarctica. One more to go! His research interests include international education policy and public diplomacy. He hopes that you will study abroad and bring a bit of the world back with you to your own community.
