DR CARLA TROMANS
Carla has called International House (IH) home since 2003, and will depart IH as Director and CEO during Semester 1, 2024.
Professionally and personally, it has been a wonderful experience living and working in such a warm multicultural community of young adults. Our culture is one that brings individuals together to experience a rich life whilst attending and studying at university. We have risen above the challenges, and I look forward to seeing how the college develops over the next few years. It has been an absolute delight and pleasure to have been your Director for so many years. – Dr Carla
Prior to IH, Carla worked within the education industry as a secondary teacher, Head of Department & Deputy Principal, in various locations within Queensland and the Northern Territory. The final two years were spent as a project officer within the Workforce Capability Unit of Education Queensland.
Carla’s interest in the professional development of graduate teachers was realised through her doctoral thesis, completed in 2002. She has also gathered two masters’ degrees (one from UQ), one in administration, the other in curriculum. In particular, Carla enjoys catching up with former IH residents at organised Alumni events and being a brand ambassador for International House Brisbane. She is passionate about the community and enjoys the diversity and intellect of our young residents.
