|Harmony DeFazio||Executive Director, UA Study Abroad||
Harmony’s interest in a career in international education began after college, but her desire to explore the world began earlier when, at age 15, she participated in a short exchange to Germany. This experience piqued a cultural curiosity that motivated her repeated return to Germany to live, work and study. Harmony attended the University of Oregon, where she earned first a BA in German with minors in Italian and Linguistics, then a Master of Public Administration with a focus on international education. As an undergraduate, she studied abroad in Germany and Italy and traveled extensively within Europe. In graduate school, she returned to Germany to create her first study abroad program. Since then, Harmony has had a passion for developing global opportunities for US students. As a result of her personal and professional experiences abroad, Harmony is a firm believer in the life‐changing impact of intercultural exploration and understanding. She joined Arizona Global in 2006.
