Jordan Zilla is the Assistant Director of the Study Abroad Program in the Office of International Programs, where she advises students interested in going to Africa, Australia/Pacific Islands, Latin America, the Middle East, Western Europe (excluding the U.K., Ireland, and Italy), and EEB’s faculty-led programs. She is a graduate of Penn State University where she studied international politics and Spanish, and later completed her master's degree in Spanish at Middlebury College. Although her studies focused on linguistics, Jordan has always had a strong interest in socio-political issues across the Spanish-speaking world, and she conducted her final research on femicide in Mexico and other parts of Latin America. Throughout her education, she studied abroad in both Europe and South America and spent several years teaching English in Spain. Prior to joining Princeton, she worked at St. Mary’s College of Maryland where she served as Interim Assistant Director of the Office of International Education, working with both study abroad and incoming international students. Jordan began Latin dancing shortly after she moved to Princeton, and now you can find her dancing salsa, bachata, merengue, cha cha, and kizomba several times a week.
