Mandy Prorok, Education Abroad Advisor

Mandy is the primary point of contact for both outbound study abroad and incoming exchange students in the International Programs Office. She joins us after working in international education at both the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville and Arizona State University.  As an undergraduate student, she studied abroad for a semester each in Germany and Scotland, and completed her graduate program internship at La Trobe University in Melbourne, Australia.  She also lived in Orebro, Sweden for one year and spent four years teaching English in elementary and middle schools in rural Japan through the JET Programme.  Mandy has an MA in Intercultural Relations and is familiar with Swedish, German and Japanese languages.



Anna Wiitanen-Eggen, Student Staff

Anna joined the Kearney International Center in Fall 2013.  She is an Anthropology/Ethnic Studies major with a minor in Spanish.  Her interest in working with international programs develped during the summer of 2011 when Anna lived with a host family and studied in Spain.  She would be very happy to meet with any students who are interested in study abroad opportunities but don't know where to start or what kind of options exist...especially those interested in Spain!
