Kri Howland

Global Seminars Coordinator

First time meeting Kri? Please schedule an appointment by calling our office at (858) 534-1123 or stopping in at our front desk Monday-Friday 9 a.m–4 p.m.

Kristian (Kri) Howland hails from a small town in Massachusetts. She decided to move to Hawaii for college and received her B.A. in International Studies and M.A. in Applied Linguistics (TESOL) from Hawaii Pacific University. During her time in college, she studied abroad in Achi-ken, Japan for one year and Colchester, England for one semester, and fell in love with everything study abroad.

After those life-altering experiences, she worked in the HPU Study Abroad office for four years and found her passion ensuring that all students have a comprehensive international education to continue the appreciation and curiosity of other perspectives and cultures that we might not be exposed to on a daily basis.

Kri is now a Global Seminars Coordinator at UCSD and hopes to help students realize that they are already braver than they think and can 100% find a program that fits their personal, professional, and academic needs. There won't be too many opportunities like it once you graduate, so don't miss out- make an appointment as soon as you can!
