CIEE: Council on International Educational Exchange honored three outgoing members and welcomed four new people to its Academic Consortium Board (ACB) during its 2014 Annual Conference, November 19-22, in Baltimore.
Independently elected, the ACB is comprised of exemplary leaders in international education from the nation’s finest colleges and universities. They’re responsible for the quality assurance of all CIEE programs, including approvals and reviews, and site evaluations.
CIEE Executive Vice President, Study Abroad David Fougere celebrated outgoing ACB Chair Joël Gallegos for his unwavering dedication to the field of international education and CIEE, stating, “He is a leader and guide, not just for the other members of the ACB and the Academic Consortium as a whole, but also for me. Since I started at CIEE, Joël has shared with me his vast knowledge and expertise. He has been a trusted advisor, collaborator, and friend.”
Gallegos, assistant provost for international programs at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, contributed to the ACB for eight years, including serving the past two years as chair, and was instrumental in the development of new CIEE programs and models.
Brian Harley, director of programs for study abroad at Purdue University, and Cheryl Matherly, vice provost of global education at the University of Tulsa, also are leaving the board. Gallegos lauded their years of work and dedication.
