After 10 years, John Hudson will be leaving his position as Center Director of the IES Abroad Buenos Aires Center at the end of the Spring 2022 term.
John joined IES Abroad in 2012 and has accumulated a long list of accomplishments during his tenure. He led the development of the Buenos Aires-based curriculum of the Multi-Location: Emerging Economies Program, which was created in collaboration with IES Abroad Santiago and offers Business, Economics, Sociology, and Political Science students a unique comparative perspective on the two economies. He also fostered the creation of the IES Abroad Buenos Aires Symposium and research journal, highlighting outstanding student scholarship and research each semester.
John initiated the partnership with our most prominent local university in Buenos Aires, Universidad Católica Argentina, and maintains strong relationships with other institutional partners and NGOs, including TECHO, through which IES Abroad students regularly participate in community development projects in under-resourced neighborhoods.
IES Abroad will begin searching for a new Center Director shortly, and John will continue to lead the Center while we conduct the search. We appreciate John’s flexibility in assisting with the transition.
