As CWA’s international student coordinator, Ann Vogel works with international students, parents, host parents, and her CWA faculty colleagues to support our international students. She currently manages international admissions, selects host families for our international students and works as a liaison with those families, provides a cultural transition and introduction program for new international students, and works with students (Room 54 in the library) to ensure cultural adjustment to their homestays and success in their classes—particularly English and history classes. She also is a part of our International Student Support Committee.
Vogel has worked in MS and US admissions, assisted with projects in Advancement, and served as a substitute teacher in the Middle and Upper Schools. Prior to coming to CWA, she was assistant head of school at a small NWAIS school, taught English and writing from elementary through college levels, and worked in the financial marketing industry. Vogel holds a BA in English and communications from Lewis and Clark College as well as an MS in technical writing and communications from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. She has been an exchange student herself (Iran) and a Peace Corps volunteer (Oman), and she has coordinated our Global Teen Summit adult volunteers for many years. Her family (including Andy Palmer ’12 and Grace Palmer ’18) has hosted nearly a dozen international students through our Global Teen Summit and other international student programs at CWA.
