Emily Hammock Mosby

Study Abroad Exchange Advisor

505 277-4032

Emily is the study abroad exchange advisor. She offers advising on a walk-in basis M-Th from 1-3pm, or by appointment via LoboAchieve. Emily is a transplant from Indiana, where she learned the importance of casseroles, talking to strangers in the grocery line, and tractor brand loyalty.

Upon moving to New Mexico, she learned that ordering a dish “Christmas style” set her apart from the locals. She now orders “green on the side.” As a history major at Davidson College, Emily studied abroad in Bangalore, India (New Mexican-spicy has got nothing on South India). She taught English abroad in South Korea before pursuing her Master’s in Global Affairs at the University of Denver. Her research interests include intercultural communication and intercultural competence development. She worked at Ivy Tech Community College and the University of Notre Dame, both in Indiana, before becoming a UNM Lobo.
