Clark College welcomes International Recruitment Manager Chanda Kroll
VANCOUVER, Wash. – With its international program reaching its highest numbers in college history, Clark College has hired a new International Recruitment Manager to take the program to new heights.
Chanda Kroll received a Master of Arts degree in TESOL (Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages) from the School for International Training in Brattleboro, Vermont. She has been working in the field of international education since 1996.
Kroll, who resides in Vancouver, studied abroad in Germany and Austria and completed her internship for her master’s degree in Mexico. In addition, she has lived and worked in both Japan and Korea.
She has visited over 45 countries around the world and has successfully recruited students in Asia and the Middle East. On October 2, she will begin her first international visit on behalf of Clark College, traveling to Hong Kong, Macau, Seoul, Dalian, Chongqing, Beijing, and Tokyo. For fall 2007, Clark College is welcoming 72 international students from countries as diverse as Tanzania, Vietnam, Spain, Iran, Sweden, and Russia.
Kroll said, “What attracted me to Clark College is the dedication and passion that everyone seems to have for internationalizing the campus. The staff, faculty, administrators, student workers, and current students all seem to have a deep interest in learning about and building connections with people from around the world.”
Kroll added, “For the past year, Clark College has really worked hard at building their international programs, and it shows. This is a school for which I am proud to recruit because I know that students will receive excellent and personal student services, high quality instruction often using and practicing on the most current equipment in their field, and an environment where people feel a part of a community.”
