Laura Higgs, Manager of Alumni Relations
As Alumni Relations Manager, Laura oversees the Alumni Ambassador program and engages CEA alumni through re-entry programming. Laura’s mission is to provide leadership opportunities to returning students so they can begin to utilize their study abroad experience to their advantage in their future careers.
Before coming to CEA, Laura worked for Rotary International, Trinity University, and iE-USA. Laura completed a Rotary Youth Exchange to Argentina during high school that inspired her to study abroad in both Spain and Argentina while in college. She has continued to expand her travels to other parts of Europe and India.
Laura holds a Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology and Hispanic Studies from Hamilton College and a Master of Science in Global and International Education from Drexel University.
Laura speaks Spanish fluently and hopes to travel to Brazil and Thailand in the future.
