Patti Lausch started at Bryn Mawr College in 2001 as an assistant in the International Programs and Health Professions Advising Offices in Canwyll House. As the international student population continued to increase and the responsibility of international student advising became more complex, Patti became Coordinator in the Office of International Programs. This position continued to evolve, and Patti now serves as Director of International Student and Scholar Services and Advising in the Pensby Center. In her position, Patti supports Bryn Mawr College international students and scholars on F and J visas. She is responsible for providing support services for international students, scholars and staff around immigration status compliance and non-resident alien tax compliance, and developing programming and resources that support the co-curricular success of international students and managing the College’s SEVIS records.
Patti has a B.S in Education from West Chester University and a M.A in Counseling Psychology from Rosemont College. Patti happily spends time involved in various community service volunteer opportunities. She enjoys spending time at the beach and at her cottage in the Pocono Mountains, but her favorite way to spend free time is with her husband, three children and two grandchildren.
