A  short time ago I was interviewed by GoAbroad.com about my thoughts on meaningful travel and working in the field and you can access the interview here.  I’m a huge fan of GoAbroad.com and the contributions they give to the field but also because of the type of company they are.  I was honored to be asked to answer their questions!

After 17 years at the Univ. of Chicago last Friday was my last day. This coming Monday, October 2nd I start a new position as Assistant Provost for Global Education at Columbia College Chicago.

After 3 days of work I fly to Australia as I was invited to speak as well as sit on a panel at the IEAA Research Roundtable (full program available here) in Hobart, Tasmania and I will stay the rest of the week to attend the AIEC conference. This opportunity is not related to my work at Booth nor Columbia College but is, of course, international education related. After the conference I will be heading home to hire a new director of study abroad and a new director of international student and scholar services!

I’m very excited for this new professional opportunity but incredibly sad to be leaving some really great people that I have grown very fond of and will miss dearly!

Links to 250+ DACA statements issued by institutions of higher education and 30+ associations, program providers, and joint statements compiled by Soren Peterson available on GeoAnth Research at http://www.geoanth.com/daca.

The PIE News published an interesting article entitled “What could the rescission of DACA in the US mean for international education?” that readers may find of interest.

Many thanks Soren for your work on compiling this important list!

My dining room is a bit messy!  More info forthcoming on some exciting things happening!

I had a great visit yesterday to the University of Michigan Ross School of Business where I gave a workshop to the Global Initiatives team on becoming more involved in the field of international education.

Here I am talking about my engagement with GoAbroad.com and my tweets of me wearing my various GoAbroad hats! To clarify, this was at the end of the formal part of the workshop but we will still talking about engagement in the field.
