CEA CAPA Directory
Matthew Borlik, Regional Director - Southeast
Growing up in a small town in NC, Matthew had his first taste of study abroad on a short term trip to China with his community college. He then attended University of North Carolina at Wilmington and did a 3-year study abroad with them through Universitat de Valencia. After graduating Matthew worked at Wake Forest University then moved to Arizona to work at CEA CAPA. Due to the pandemic Matthew left the field of international education to work at Square. There, Matthew worked as an account manager, helping small businesses grow to empower local communities. While he enjoyed the work, he missed international education and wanted to help provide opportunities to students who were like himself and did not know study abroad was possible. Matthew is based in Greensboro, NC, and works with partners in North Carolina, Virginia, and Ohio.
