Assistant Case Manager and International Student Liaison

Originally from Beijing, China, Jian came to the United States as an international student on an F-1 visa. In December 2012, she became the first Chinese student to graduate from UM’s master’s degree program in Higher Education Administration. Shortly after, she assumed her current role as International Student Liaison and Assistant to the Dean in DOSO. In this newly created role, Jian uses her experience as an edge in helping international students understand University policies, and connect to important resources and services campus wide. Jian’s passion for cross-cultural student engagement and activities is fueled in part by her extensive travels throughout the U.S and other countries, including Japan, Malaysia, France, Germany, and the Netherlands. In her down time, Jian enjoys cooking, baking, watching sunsets, watching movies, trying new foods, and learning new things.
