She has served as a tenured faculty member, department chair, academic dean and program director at several MSIs. A current elected council member at the Forum on Education Abroad, Abraham has collaborated on working groups, globally presented at forums, seminars, and conferences on both international education and African (diaspora) literature. Abraham earned a PhD in comparative literature with an emphasis on Postcolonial literature and culture (specifically African diaspora women’s literature) and popular education, and her bachelor’s degree in English (emphasis on women’s studies) at the esteemed Spelman College. Prior to starting her own agency, she was the inaugural senior director of diversity and inclusion at CIEE.
