Associate Vice Provost for International Education
The University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC) seeks nominations and applications for a visionary, energetic, and innovative leader to serve as the inaugural Associate Vice Provost for International Education. The role of Associate Vice Provost for International Education is a new one for UMBC as of 2017. The impetus behind the creation of this position is a desire to facilitate even deeper engagement of UMBC's students and faculty with partners around the world, while also further elevating the University's international visibility and reputation.
The initial priority for the new Associate Vice Provost will be assessing and leading Office of International Education Services (IES). IES provides activities, services, and advising for study abroad students, international students, and international faculty, researchers, and scholars. The other critical responsibility of the Associate Vice Provost will be to reach beyond the IES to facilitate and catalyze international engagement across the university as a whole.
