Denise Miller – Study Abroad Advisor
Denise advises all students in the School of Arts and Sciences and in the School of Professional Studies on semester study abroad opportunities, and is the designated advisor for all short-term study abroad. With daughters who studied abroad in Australia and Ireland, Denise experienced first-hand what the entire study abroad process entails for students, to say nothing of the parental anxiety such an experience often generates. Prior to her role as a Study Abroad Advisor, Denise spent six years working in the PC Off-Campus Housing Office, followed by seven years as the Administrative Coordinator in the Center for International Studies. As a result, Denise is well qualified to assist Providence College students with their study abroad plans.
Anna Iadeluca – Administrative Coordinator
Anna is the front-line resource of the Center for International Studies. Prior to her position in the CIS, Anna spent five years working in the PC Office of Enrollment Services. In her former role as a Degree Audit Specialist, Anna worked closely with the CIS, assisting study abroad students and members of the faculty with the course articulation process. As a parent of a current college student and a future college student, Anna brings her understanding of the concerns and occasional apprehension felt by both parents and students alike.
