Cara Gilpin, M.A. — 2014
Cara Gilpin graduated from the International Studies graduate program in Winter 2014. She participated in a Fulbright International Education Administrators Seminar (IEA) in Germany in October 2015, one of 20 professionals to attend from throughout the U.S. Prior to her Fulbright, she won a Rotary Scholarship, a funded professional development opportunity to learn how International Education is practiced in India, and to learn more about the culture in the region (see photo) where her group traveled. This became a full-fledged exchange, when her Indian colleagues visited the U.S. many months later. Cara is Assistant Director of the University of North Carolina’s Study Abroad office in Asheville, N.C. She loves her work there.
