Biography: Lynn Aguado coordinates MSU study abroad programs for the College of Communication Arts and Sciences and the College of Education. She also advises and manages the administrative process for students participating in Non-MSU-sponsored programs. In addition, Lynn is the liaison with the Office of Financial Aid and works on outreach related to financing education abroad.

Lynn received a B.A. in Spanish Language and Literature at the University of Michigan, during which time she participated in an academic year abroad program at the Universidad de Sevilla in Seville, Spain, where she developed fluency in Spanish and a love of discovering new cultures. After returning home, she worked as a peer advisor in the U of M study abroad office that led to a permanent position as a study abroad advisor after graduation. She has been working in the field of international education ever since, at U of M, the University of Missouri-Columbia, and now at MSU. Lynn obtained a Master’s degree in Higher, Adult and Lifelong Education in May 2017 from the MSU College of Education.

Lynn enjoys using her Spanish language skills as well as the French that she studied in high school and college, and she has picked up some Italian over the years, as well. It was her love of language that propelled her to go abroad, but she gained much more than the ability to communicate in Spanish during her time in Spain. She learned to be flexible, patient and self-reliant, and to appreciate and celebrate diverse ways of thinking and living. She is proud to be part of a great team of MSU faculty and staff who support students to achieve their education abroad goals.
