Schedule a virtual advising appointment with Stephanie!  Beginning August 2021, I will be working in a hybrid capacity and will be on VCU's campus on Tuesdays, Wednesdays & Thursdays.    Stephanie Tignor has worked in the Global Education Office for more than a decade in a variety of positions. As the director of Education Abroad, Stephanie oversees the administration of the university's study abroad and exchange programs including faculty-led programs. She is an alumna of VCU, at which she earned both her bachelor's and master's degrees. She first discovered her passion for international education while on a semester study abroad program in Edinburgh, Scotland, through the International Student Exchange Program (ISEP). As a graduate student in English, she studied abroad in Peru and spent time volunteering in Ecuador as a teacher of English as a foreign language.
