Devin is SFS’ Director of Institutional Relations and the Institutional Relations Manager for the Upper Northeast Region: MA, ME, NH, RI, and VT.
Devin graduated from Dartmouth College in 2003 with a degree in English and a vague idea of exploring the world. He spent the next five years traveling across the globe, setting foot in 40 countries on five continents. For much of this time, Devin worked as a freelance reporter covering events in conflict and post-conflict countries such as Afghanistan, Laos, Somaliland, Rwanda, Iran and Bosnia. Following this, he spent a summer on an island in Maine writing a book about his travels, and how young people and small communities survived difficult circumstances. Devin also returned to Afghanistan to work with an NGO operating four schools for girls in Kabul. During graduate school, he worked for Mercy Corps in Niger developing strategies to target food insecurity.
He joined SFS in June of 2014 and became the Director of Institutional Relations in 2017. He has presented at regional and national conferences focused on international education. He currently serves on The Forum on Education Abroad’s Data Committee, the Forum’s HBCUs Working Group, and on the Access Advisory Board for The Fund for Education Abroad, which provides scholarships and ongoing support to students who are underrepresented among the US study abroad population.
