Lorne Boutte


Domestic Coordinator
Domestic Global Learning Programs

As an undergraduate at Chicago State, Lorne had the opportunity to play golf collegiately. This afforded him the chance to travel across the entire U.S. and see a large percentage of the country. Those experiences leave him passionate for what students can learn about our nation and themselves away from ASU.

Prior to joining the Study Abroad Office at ASU, Lorne coordinated undergraduate matters across Northwestern University’s seven undergraduate schools. While there, he helped organize a program created to support first-year students with the cost of course materials in introductory STEM classes. Additionally, Lorne worked for Nike, where he coordinated community efforts within the central territory of the U.S. with organizations such as United Way, Boys & Girls Club, YMCA, and Chicago Park District.


  • B.A. English; Chicago State University

International Experience

  • Traveled extensively across the United States as a collegiate athlete
  • Traveled abroad to the United Kingdom and the Dominican Republic

Why Lorne works in study abroad: I enjoy helping students uncovering experiences that they may not have considered. There’s plenty of culture right here in the U.S., and it’s exciting ASU is creating these opportunities. I am excited to be at the forefront of domestic programs!

Advice for students preparing to go abroad: Have an open mind and try to live through the viewpoint of a local! There’s so much one can gain from understanding another person’s perspective.

One of the most important lessons Lorne learned while studying abroad or traveling: The most important lessons I have learned from traveling is that it helps foster a creative and adventurous spirit. Travel gives you a renewed sense of being and reminds that anything is possible.
