Cameron_KelliKelli Cameron will join CALS on Aug. 25 to lead study abroad and international internship programs for students.

“I am thrilled to have this opportunity to work with CALS students, faculty and staff as we discover, plan and promote study abroad programs,” Cameron says. “Studying abroad is not about the destination, but the journey. Every step of the process helps develop our personal abilities and professional interests.”

Cameron brings to the position a rich and diverse background in both higher education and industry, says Sarah Pfatteicher, CALS associate dean for academic affairs.

“Kelli has expertise not only in international education, but also in agriculture, fundraising, marketing and more,” Pfatteicher says. “This breadth, along with Kelli’s infectious enthusiasm, will serve our students well and help to ensure continued strong engagement by CALS in global education.”

Cameron’s prior positions include posts at Blackhawk Technical College, Purdue University, American Family Insurance, and Johnsonville Sausage. She holds a B.S. in Agricultural Education and Agricultural Extension from Iowa State, and an M.S. in Curriculum and Instruction, with an emphasis in International Extension Education, from Purdue University.
