Cultivating Lasting Relations With Iowa State’s International Alumni | Karla McCollum
Karla McCollum, Director of Development for International Engagement for the Iowa State University Foundation, has over 15 years of international career experience which encompasses the fields of international admissions, recruitment, diplomacy, and now advancement. The desire for an international career began as a farm girl in southern Iowa learning about her family’s German grandparents experience immigrating to the US. However, a career in anything international looked like a pipe-dream and impossible. Karla continued to dream and have faith through many years of impossibilities.
Today, Karla’s career opportunities have taken her to over 40 counties in Asia, South America, the Caribbean, the Middle East, and Europe. Karla has had a varied career that has encompassed working with international students in education, working with world governments through citizen diplomacy efforts for the state of Iowa, and now enjoying working in the field of advancement and helping international alumni give back to Iowa State University. Karla has earned a BA in Business Administration and a Masters in Business Administration with a Leadership emphasis.
