Larry Komrower Joins the College of Geosciences as High Impact Program Coordinator

Sep 18, 2015

The College of Geosciences has recently expanded its student services by hiring Larry Komrower as High Impact Program Coordinator.  

“Our goal is to increase student participation in learning experiences such as study abroad, internships, and undergraduate research,” said Dr. Chris Houser, associate dean for undergraduate and faculty affairs. “We are pleased to have found a person with Larry’s experience who can help us accomplish this.”

Komrower received his undergraduate degree in French with a minor in theater at Ithaca College. After graduating, he spent two years as an English language assistant in Annecy, France, and Almansa, Spain.  After returning to the United States, he received an MA in French linguistics from Indiana University in Bloomington and served as an associate instructor of French.

Komrower was most recently with the Texas A&M University Study Abroad Programs Office. With a personal and professional interest in international exposure and culture, Komrower wants to provide more of these opportunities to students in Geosciences.

He will work to promote international opportunities available to students as well as work with faculty to develop new programs. He plans to connect faculty with students interested in pursuing research projects and assist students in identifying internship opportunities.

“Much learning occurs outside of the classroom,” Komrower said. “My goal is to increase these experiences for students in our college.”
