After a successful national search, we are happy to announce that Kristine Schramer as Associate Director of the Cortona Studies Abroad Program. We feel Kristine will be a true benefit for the program due to her experience with the Italian culture and language, her talent and expertise as a painting and drawing artist/instructor and her previous background with art based studies abroad in Italy.
Kristine earned her MFA from Indiana University, Bloomington and a BA in Fine Art from The College of William and Mary, Virginia. Since 2001 she has served as full-time faculty at Columbus College of Art and Design in Columbus, Ohio. She has taught for the Institute for Italian and Sardinian Studies, Santu Lussugiu, Sardinia, Italy as well as the Indiana University Study Abroad Program in Florence, Italy.
Kristine’s responsibilities will include oversight of operations and programming, primarily as they occur on Italian soil. She will also be teaching periodically for the Cortona program in her area of expertise.
Although Kristine will be spending much of her time on the Cortona residential center campus, we are pleased she will be a part of the Cortona Program and the School of Art. Please join me in welcoming Kristine to the Cortona Program, Lamar Dodd School of Art, Franklin College and the Office of International Education.
Welcome to Kristine Schramer.
