Mollie Laffin-Rose

Administrative Coordinator

Mollie Laffin-Rose joined CASI in February 2016 as Administrative Coordinator. She has a tapestry of experience in education program development, education publishing, and language teaching in the US and India. She helped develop Communications course books at Macmillan Publishers in New York and edited a book by United Nations development economists, Timor-Leste: The History and Development of Asia’s Newest Nation (Lexington Books, 2014). This grew her interest in education for human and socioeconomic development in Asia. She has since worked in this field in New Delhi and other parts of India, including managing a women’s vocational education program with the American India Foundation, consulting to education companies and organizations, and teaching English. Mollie is particularly interested in language and literacy for development. She is currently pursuing dual Masters degrees at Penn's Graduate School of Education, in Intercultural Communication and International Education Development. Mollie has a B.A. in Philosophy from Wesleyan University.
