She works with Universities in the Pacific Northwest and Rocky Mountain States. Originally from Seattle, Michelle graduated with a B.A. in Communication from Washington State University and an M.A. in International and Human Rights Education at the University of San Francisco.

Here is a link to their Faculty-Led brochures:  https://www.aifsabroad.com/advisors/partnerships.asp where you can learn more about their Customized Program Division. Faculty from the home institution teach their curriculum abroad (with optional use of local adjunct professors), and the institution maintains academic control over the program and retains tuition income.

The Center for International Education Study Abroad Office, provides various levels of support to assist UNC departments with faculty-led program development. We look forward to working with you soon.
