The University Relations team is led by Candace Matta, Vice President of University Relations. With over a decade of experience in international education, several of those years visiting universities herself as a “road warrior,” Candace is charged with developing innovative ways for CISabroad to be a strong partner to universities.
Whether it’s coming to campus to hold open advising hours for students or hosting a health and safety workshop for faculty members interested in teaching abroad, our university relations team hopes to work with you to develop a presence to help your office meet its goals. We know that each university has unique needs and we aim to determine which CISabroad programs are the best fit for your students.
