Message from our President
We’re excited that you found us! Here’s a message from our President and founder, Dr. Kristian Chervenock, with more information on who we are, what we do, and why we do it.
After nearly two decades of working in the field of international education within the university setting (study abroad, international student and scholar services and intensive English programs), I’ve learned a lot about student mobility and the offices that support them. One thing that I know for sure is that I love this field and plan to spend the rest of my professional career working with students and universities from around the world.
I’m most passionate about connecting students with limited financial means to secondary and post-secondary institutions across the globe where students can achieve their personal and academic goals without breaking their budget. I also love supporting educational institutions and organizations in their efforts to internationalize their campus, research initiatives, curriculum and faculty.
The passion to help international students access high quality and affordable higher education opportunities in the U.S. inspired me to create my first program and what I consider the flagship of Study New Mexico USA—the High School to University Scholarship Program. You can read more about this program by clicking here or access program details from the home page.
The consulting side of Study New Mexico USA materialized very organically. My dissertation research focused on best practices in strategic international student enrollment and management and my 12+ years working in international programs equipped me with the practical knowledge to fine-tune office processes and procedures to achieve enrollment goals. Please visit our consulting page for more information on how Study New Mexico USA can assist your program or institution.
At Study New Mexico USA we value our relationships and look forward to working with you in the future to help you achieve your international study, campus internationalization, or enrollment goals. Click on Contact Us for email, Skype and telephone details. We look forward to hearing from you.
Kristian Chervenock, Ph.D.
President, Study New Mexico USA
