With the Global Leadership SerIES, we seek to share with you our incredible community of academics, artists, scientists, innovators, change-makers, philanthropists, justice seekers, and visionaries who are leaders in their respective fields. We hope this glimpse at the people behind the passion at IES Abroad—or who participated in or partnered on the experiences we provide—will leave you feeling inspired.
As a part of the Global Leadership SerIES, we’re kicking off a series hosted by Gretchen Cook Anderson, former Associate Vice President, Assistant to the President for Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Antiracism, and Director of Diversity Recruitment and Advising. Fireside Chats with Fascinating Faculty are a chance to get to know IES Abroad professors worldwide. Because we believe that study abroad is a catalyst for peace and a long-term antidote to systemic racism, we consider our faculty members front-line agents for change. Learn more about the courses they teach, their research and professional interests outside of IES Abroad, and about how they are inspiring and giving students the tools to become global citizens.
