The Global Education office added another piece to its puzzle when French professor Dr. Christine Gaudry was hired as its faculty coordinator. With the addition of Patriece Campbell the office is ready to implement the initiatives in Millersville University’s Bold Path plan.
Gaudry was born in Boulogne Billancourt, a commune in the western part of Paris, France, where she lived until she was nine. She then moved to the suburbs of Ville d’Avray where her mother still lives. Gaudry received a maîtrise in British literature in 1979 and a master’s degree in twentieth century French literature in 1982 from the Université de Paris X Nanterre. She received a Ph.D. in eighteenth century French literature from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1986.
As Global Education continues to shift from strictly study abroad to more international education, Gaudry figures to play a big role in that transition. As a faculty coordinator, she collaborates with the staff to support the development and implementation of international initiatives serving the university community through on-campus programs and opportunities abroad. She also serves as an advisor to international students who come and study at Millersville University.
The faculty coordinator is also very much involved in approving who is going to study abroad and ensuring that academic credits transfer back to our home institution. She is the person to reach out to if a faculty member wants to teach a course abroad. She also has vital information about scholarships for both students and faculty.
