 Maggie Strassman, Director of International Services

Maggie manages all aspects of Marlboro's international programming; from supporting international students to coordinating study abroad students, and from overseeing internationalization efforts on campus to developing overseas partners and exchange agreements. Prior to Marlboro College, Maggie directed short-term study abroad programs for high school students in Europe, Asia, Oceania, and the Caribbean. Maggie earned her MA in International Education from the SIT Graduate Institute and her BA in Human Geography and International Studies from the University of Wisconsin. In a previous life Maggie lived in (yes, in) a bookstore in the Czech Republic, on an island with no roads in Fiji, and in the rainforest of Dominica, but is thoroughly enjoying putting down roots here in southern Vermont.





 Hi, Everyone! 

My name is Mikaela Geary and I am currently a first semester senior at Marlboro. 

Most of my time at Marlboro has been dedicated to research in the areas of Linguistics, Migration Studies and Swedish. My plan projects integrate discussions of language and migration within the Scandinavian region and how the ESL classroom plays a role in the effective integration of migrant students across Sweden.

Last year, I lived in Alingsås, Sweden on my World Studies Internship. During my time spent between Alingsås and the greater Göteborg area, I taught English as a second language in a secondary school and studied Scandinavian Studies at Göteborg University. After a year of interning and doing research abroad, I found a new passion in helping others pursue their global interests!

If study abroad is something that interests you, I would be more than happy to assist you in any stage of the process. Feel free to reach me via email:
