As a Regional Director based out of Baltimore, Maryland, Larry cultivates and maintains relationships with U.S. colleges and universities in the Mid-Atlantic region, supporting their study abroad goals by keeping them abreast of CEA program offerings and opportunities. He works closely with university advisors, faculty, and staff to support the student exploration, advising, and registration processes, and to identify how CEA can promote campus’ internationalization agendas.
Before joining CEA, Larry worked for University of Maryland University College (UMUC) in positions including Academic Advisor and Assistant Director of Third Party Operations. In these roles, Larry worked closely with students to identify international and domestic opportunities that fit into their degree plans. He also maintained relationships with other universities to define course articulations that standardized transfer credit opportunities. Beyond his academic advising duties, Larry coordinated with third party agencies, private business entities, and international universities to increase opportunities for students by building partnerships that provided tuition discounts or tuition deferral options.
Larry obtained his BA in Psychology from Goucher College, the first college in the nation to require all of its undergraduate students to study abroad. He decided on a career in international education after returning from a study abroad program in Barcelona, Spain during his time at Goucher. As a part of this program, Larry also had the opportunity to spend time in London, Madrid, and Amsterdam. He believes that all students should have the opportunity to study abroad, as it’s truly a transformative experience that allows students to explore different ways of communicating, working, learning, and living.
Larry went on to complete his MS in Higher Education Administration with a concentration in Global & International Education at Drexel University. Larry completed his thesis on the impact study abroad has on a student’s career choices five to 10 years after graduation. He is a member of NAFSA.
