I have had the great pleasure of leading the Office since 2012. I am originally from the United States where I also worked in international education. I believe that the experience of studying abroad is key for any student seeking to better understand the world and mature as a person. I had the opportunity to study and work in Costa Rica, Russia, Japan and Kazakhstan. I have lived in Argentina for more than 10 years with my bicultural children and husband. I am excited to help you embark on an exchange program - an adventure of pure learning!

Luz Horne

Academic Director

I am the Academic Director of the Office of International Programs in San Andrés and work particularly on the Program in Latin American Studies (PLAS). I am also a Literature Professor in the Department of Humanities. I did my PhD in Latin American literature at Yale University and my Bachelor of Philosophy at the University of Buenos Aires. I was a professor at Northwestern University and Cornell University. In my classes and research I work in the area of Latin American literature and visual culture. My book Real Literature, Transformations of realism in contemporary Latin American literature, examines the relationship between word and image within literature and how this relationship impacts the representation of reality. I enjoy working with international students in San Andrés because it enriches and diversifies the university space and teaching.

I am currently coordinating the Outgoing Exchange Students at the International Programs Office. I studied Business Administration and during my third year of studies I had the possibility of going abroad on an exchange at the University of Toronto. Being able to live and study in a different country with a different culture was an amazing experience both for my professional career and personal growth. I strongly believe that doing an exchange can be really positive. I am here to help you experience this opportunty!

Welcome! I coordinate the Incoming area of the office and work together with the Special Projects Coordinator regarding our international students. I'm a professor and also have a bachelor's degree in Social Communication. I'm passionate about teaching and psychology and I believe that communicating and creating bonds with other cultures are fundamental in the development of a person and also a way to open ourselves up to a new world of opportunities. In the past I worked with different international companies getting to know many cities and amazing people which I feel has changed my understanding of the world. Count on me to make the most of this experience!
