You are welcome here
I have a special place in my heart for international students; I admire their courage,
tenacity, and good humor. But internationalization is more than bringing students
in and sending some abroad. We need to create a more globally-focused culture on campus.
I am motivated by my strong belief that we must spread the message that the U.S. welcomes
those who choose to study among us and that our domestic students need more ways to
connect with others from other countries, whether they stay on our campus and simply
hang out with the international students here or go abroad to meet others in their
home countries. Helping all of our students learn and grow is what college is all
about, and I see myself as assisting in the process where and when I can.
