Kira Rysiewicz, Regional Director - Central States

University Relations

As a Regional Director based in Indianapolis, Kira works closely with study abroad advisors, administrators, and faculty at higher education institutions to support student growth through study and internship opportunities. Kira also coordinates with CEA’s campus partners to develop custom, faculty-led programs.

Kira comes to CEA after 5 years at the Institute for Study Abroad (IFSA), where she served in several university relations roles, most recently as the Field Director for the Midwest and Mid-Atlantic. Prior to entering the field of international education, she worked in Greek Life at her sorority’s national headquarters. Kira obtained her Bachelor of Arts in Spanish, Journalism, and Leadership Studies from Bradley University and her experience studying abroad for a semester in Granada, Spain furthered her love of travel and language learning. Kira has traveled to 20 countries, and she hopes to visit New Zealand or Southeast Asia next.

Kira is passionate about equity and making sure study abroad is accessible to all students. Her advice to students considering study abroad is to not be afraid to get out of your comfort zone, be endlessly curious, ask questions, and remember that cultural differences are what make our world a better place.
