Walk-In Advising Hours: By Appointment Only

Kia Ora! I'm Brad, a Pittsburgh transplant who discovered a passion for international education during my own study abroad experiences here at Pitt. My time abroad took me on back-to-back semester programs to Costa Rica and New Zealand. I’ve also had the good fortune to travel throughout Canada, Fiji, Panama, Nicaragua, Spain, and Switzerland. Now, as the International Programs Coordinator for Pitt Business, I get to help others have their own memorable experiences abroad! Outside of the office you can find me snapping photos around the city, exploring the outdoors, and planning future adventures both near and far. Get in touch with me to chat about study abroad at bradminer@pitt.edu or 412-383-7136.

Buna! That’s hello in Romanian. 
After returning from being a Peace Corp volunteer in Transylvania- I decided to work in the field of international education helping international students.  Life took me back to Buffalo, NY (where I grew up- land of chicken wings)- and I worked for SUNY Buffalo for many years assisting international students and scholars.  In 2010, I moved to the ‘Burgh- and am now assisting engineering students to study abroad. 
For fun I enjoy volunteering with my therapy dog Nora, yoga and fitness, international films, crocheting, and travel (of course).

Come talk with me about studying abroad!

Walk-In Advising Hours:

Bonjour! I became the Swanson School’s first Director of International Initiatives in August 2007. In this role I have collaborated with Swanson School faculty members to create international education opportunities for engineering students- including studying abroad, international internships and service learning projects along with other research opportunities abroad. I have also conducted research on learning processes in the context of international education. I studied in Paris, France during my junior year and continue to love visiting countries around the world whenever possible, learning as much as I can about other cultures. I enjoy supporting engineering students and seeing them change from their experiences abroad. 

Come talk with me about studying abroad!
