Kevin Timlin

Director

What do you do in the International Programs office?

My job is to work with an excellent group of people who are committed to promoting all aspects of campus internationalization and to providing outstanding service to the campus and community.   

What are your favorite things to do in Marquette?

My favorite things are: going to community events at the Peter White Public Library, snow skiing/sledding, playing ice hockey, and doing anything in or around the lake. I also like listening to live music at the Ore Dock Brewing Company.

Describe yourself in one word.

Curious.

What do you like most about your job at NMU?

I love that I am able to enable and facilitate intercultural exchange on a daily basis.

What is one interesting fact about you?

I am a huge sports fan, both as a spectator and participant. Other than the NMU Wildcats, my favorite teams are the Chicago Blackhawks, Cubs, Bears, and Iowa Hawkeyes.  

If you could say one thing to every college student in the world, what would it be?

No matter how old you are or where you come from, your time in college should be a time to learn about yourself, the world, and your place in it. My advice to students is always approach new people and ideas with an open-mind, ask questions about everything, take advantage of the many opportunities you’ll have to experience to new things, and commit yourself to being a responsible global citizen.
