Conference Speakers

Kye Gardner '16

Education Abroad Outreach Coordinator, Office of International Programs

During their time on campus as a student, Kye was very involved on and off campus, serving as an RA, a Seahawk Link, and held 2-3 part time jobs off campus at any given time. Kye also studied abroad in Germany while attending UNCW which allowed them an entire different perspective on the world and their time in higher education. Kye now works in International Programs on campus promoting education abroad to all students, helping to spread the word about the importance of learning more about the world we live in.
