Meet the Staff – Catherine Marshall

Catherine-edit

Name: Catherine Marshall

Position: Director. I have the pleasure of working with extremely talented and dedicated staff and faculty devoted to creating educative and meaningful global experiences for OHIO students.

Education: AB in German Area Studies from Kenyon College, MA and PhD in German from University of Cincinnati.

How long  have you been at OEA: I began working at the OEA in 2001 as the associate director.

Favorite aspect of work: Facilitating transformative learning experiences for students and working with an incredibly diverse and engaged group of colleagues at OHIO and abroad.

Experiences abroad: I’ve had many opportunities to travel internationally in my professional capacity, but it all started with a junior high spring break trip to Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Liechtenstein in 9 days (including international travel!). It was a crazy, whirlwind trip, but it really whet my appetite for more global experiences. I spent my junior year abroad in Freiburg, Germany and a year of my PhD program in Hamburg, Germany. I’ve had the pleasure of taking students to Regensburg, Germany as well.

*The post is a part of  a series of “Meet the Staff” posts. Each week different staff members from the Office of Education Abroad (OEA) will be featured. You can contact Catherine at 740-593-4583 or marshalc@ohio.edu.
