Study Abroad Staff


Amy Wruck
Program Coordinator

Amy WruckAmy grew up near Chicago, Illinois before moving downstate to attend Illinois College, where she completed her BS in International Studies, focusing on Political Science, Religion, and Economics. During college, she studied abroad in Morocco, Austria, and New Zealand before realizing that she wanted to spend her career helping students have the same kind of amazing, transformative experiences that she did. Amy earned her Master’s degree in International Higher Education Leadership from Old Dominion University in Norfolk, VA and spent most of her time there working in Campus Recreation and International Student Services. One week after her program ended in Virginia, she jammed everything she owned into the back of her car and drove cross country to Portland to join the UP community.

Over the years, Amy has also traveled to Ecuador, Japan, Hong Kong, Australia, Fiji, all over Europe (favorites include France, Belgium, and the Czech Republic), and all over the U.S. – both for work and for fun. Despite her extensive travels, she has never visited Canada or Mexico and hopes to make it to both sometime soon.
