  • Coordinating the efforts to recruit, admit, and advise international students and scholars and assist them in achieving academic and personal success.
  • Promoting cross-cultural understanding by developing and coordinating exchange and study abroad opportunities for Wright State students, faculty, and staff.
  • Collaborating with academic departments and global partners to internationalize the curriculum, develop joint academic programs and seek external funding to support new international initiatives. 
  • Collaborating with community, state and national governments, businesses and NGOs on international issues and opportunities.
  • Managing Wright State compliance with federal regulations and best practices for immigration, education abroad and all other aspects of international affairs.
