Maren Stoddard Mack is the Recruitment and Outreach Specialist in CGEE. She advises Augsburg students as they navigate their off-campus study choices—there are so many great opportunities for Auggies! She also gets to spend a little time on the road promoting Augsburg Global Campus programs at other colleges and universities.
Maren holds a BA in Scandinavian Studies from Gustavus Adolphus College, and an MA in Comparative and International Development Education from the University of Minnesota. Previous to joining Augsburg, Maren worked in a few positions at the University of Minnesota, including as an intercultural adjustment instructor for international students.
Study Abroad isn’t just a job for Maren—she knows firsthand that it can be a life-changing experience. She spent her junior year of college studying culture and language in Sweden; she then lived in Tsuruga City, Japan for three years working as an assistant English teacher. While in Japan, Maren picked up a love for taiko drumming, which she still practices here in Minneapolis. In her remaining free time, Maren likes to take walks around Minneapolis with her family, and taste the flavors of the world at Midtown Global Market!
