Global Education, formerly The Office of Global Education and Partnership, officially announced their name change during International Education Week. This change is representative of a larger rebranding effort to restructure and reorganize the office to better meet the needs of all Millersville students.
The decision to rebrand follows the university’s strategic plan to focus on internationalization and global thinking. In Spring 2015, the international student and scholars services was transferred to Global Education, inspiring a reevaluation and reallocation of office resources.
Global Education is on a mission to enrich the academic and cultural environment of Millersville University by leading internationalization initiatives. These efforts are guided by the vision of an inclusive, internationalized campus that fosters global leadership and engagement.
The Global Education team welcomed two new additions, Director of International Programs, Patriece Campbell, and Faculty Coordinator, Christine Gaudry, as part of these innovative changes. Faculty Coordinator was a new position created to support students and Millersville faculty on a globally minded campus. To learn more about Patriece and Christine, chekc out their interviews on this issue of The Gazette.
Thanks to the support of the Millersville faculty, administration, and student body, Global Education is on its way to becoming a front runner in study abroad and international student services.
