Associate Dean of Students Greg Caldwell travels globally
February 06, 2009
Greg Caldwell, Associate Dean of Students and Director of International Students and Scholars, has been invited by IREX (International Research and Exchanges Board) in Washington, D.C. to travel to Kiev, Ukraine and Chisinau, Moldova to interview applicants for its 2009/10 Global Undergraduate Exchange Program (UGRAD).
“Greg has been a pillar of international education for many years and we are incredibly proud that he has been selected to aid IREX in their recruitment and review processes” said Celestino Limas, Dean of Students. “Greg is a Lewis & Clark institution whose dedication to international students is unmatched. I join many students, faculty, and staff in congratulating him on this significant honor.”
The Global UGRAD program is sponsored by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) of the US Department of State. The program brings undergraduate students from the former Soviet Republics to study for one academic year in US colleges and universities.
Lewis & Clark has participated in the UGRAD program for the past four years and has hosted student scholars from Turkmenistan, Russia, Ukraine, and Moldova.
Caldwell will depart in mid-February for the two-week trip.
