Isabelle Kazan, Program Director
Growing up in a multicultural family in the south of France, Isabelle developed a passion for international experiences. She holds a master’s degree in International Relations & Intercultural Communication from Sciences Po Aix, and decided to pursue a career beyond French borders after completing an exchange program at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Isabelle has worked in international higher education for over ten years. She has served on the admissions team for a study abroad provider based in Vermont, and on the onsite staff for the Paris campus of St John's University. She has also led multiple short-term programs to Tanzania and Morocco.
Isabelle finds it particularly rewarding to help students develop resourcefulness and confidence that accelerate their education and career. In her leadership position, she endeavors to provide students with a meaningful experience abroad by challenging them beyond what they think they can do, connecting them to the world beyond their familiar bubble, and building a community in which they care about each other and about others, fostering empathy and curiosity.
In her spare time, Isabelle can be found teaching yoga classes, training in a boxing ring, and cooking with a great deal of spices.
