User Image About Dr. Kyle C Rausch:
Kyle currently works as Assistant Director of the Study Abroad Office. In addition to leading the Faculty-Directed Programs Unit, Kyle coordinates programs for the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences (Social Sciences), Barrett the Honors College, the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication, and the Thunderbird School of Global Management and works on the growth of international internship opportunities for ASU students. Prior to joining the ASU Study Abroad Office (SAO) team, Kyle worked at the Florida State University International Programs Office, where he coordinated student and faculty visas, managed the passport acceptance facility, and served as Assistant Director for FSU’s study abroad programs in Paris, France. Kyle holds an Ed.D. in Leadership and Innovation from ASU; his research focuses on supporting first-generation college students in study abroad. Additionally, he holds a Master of Science in Higher Education Administration from Florida State University and his undergraduate degrees of French and International Affairs complement his passion for the field of international education.  His first foreign exchange experience was during high school where, as a member of his school’s French club, Kyle traveled to the small French island of Noirmoutier, followed by visits to the Loire Valley and Paris.  This experience cultivated his interest in francophone studies and led to his participation on two Intensive French summer programs at the Institut Catholique in Paris.  Kyle rounded out his international education experiences by completing an internship at the British Parliament with the Liberal Democrat party.  He has led student groups to Paris several times and looks forward to helping other students have meaningful international education experiences.   Kyle has contributed to the field of international education through the following accomplishments: NAFSA Region II Conference (Santa Fe, NM) November 2016 Session Presentation: New Models for Pre-departure Orientation for Today's Students NAFSA Education Abroad Liaison for Region II (2014-2016) NAFSA Rainbow SIG Newsletter Co-editor (2014-2016) NAFSA Annual Conference (Denver, CO), May 2016 Session Presentation: Traditional Student Populations in Education Abroad: Uncovering Additional Capacity.
