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.
