My name is Tracy Weber, and I look forward to working with you as you embark on your study abroad journey! As the College’s Director of Global Education, I am responsible for undergraduate study abroad, international exchange agreements, and thinking strategically about global education at the College. Previously I developed and managed study abroad and global internship programs at University of California Berkeley and the George Washington University, where I launched their London Study Center. I have worked with incoming international scholars through the Fulbright and Sister City programs, and studied abroad in Switzerland and Russia. I also spent three years in Japan through the Japan Exchange and Teaching Programme (JET) and upon my return to the U.S. served in the political section of the Japanese Embassy in Washington D.C. I hold a B.A. in International Relations from the University of Virginia and an M.A. in International Communication from American University’s School of International Service. In addition to my professional interests in intercultural communication, peace and conflict resolution, and international education, I love modern art, being out in nature – hiking, kayaking, swimming – and cooking, in particular exploring recipes from my grandmother’s native Finland.

Study Abroad Student Coordinator

Hi! My name is Lyla Poonawala, and I’m a senior here at Bryn Mawr College. While I thoroughly enjoy the classes that my double major - Economics and Psychology - has to offer, I found myself eager to gain some exposure in the world of art. That’s why I spent the spring semester of my junior year at the Sotheby’s Institute of Art in London, where I immersed into everything from analyzing the trends set by emerging art markets, to assessing the impact of globalization on modern art and lots more. Please don’t hesitate to come by my office hours if you have any questions about studying abroad, or if you would like to chat about the art world or the Sotheby’s program!
