The University of Tulsa’s Vice Provost of Global Engagement Vivian Wang has been selected by the Association of International Education Administrators to be one of their four 2023-24 Presidential Fellows.
The Association of International Education Administrators (AIEA) is a member organization that equips leaders to shape the future of higher education in a global context. The AIEA advances strategic transformational approaches to internationalization of higher education; empowers those who lead such efforts; convenes global conversation on key issues; and partners with other organizations around the world to develop sustainable, forward-looking perspectives.
The AIEA Presidential Fellows program is a highly competitive mentoring initiative for senior international officers serving in the first three years of their current positions. Fellows are matched with experienced mentors to provide advice, consultation, and guidance on internationalization issues tailored to their institutions. Each fellow is awarded a small stipend toward a visit to their mentor’s campus. This program affords participants the opportunity to observe how experienced senior international officers and their institutions address international education challenges and solve problems, to learn about national and international issues and how they affect individual campuses, and to become a member of an international network that can serve as a resource beyond the Presidential Fellows program.
“As a presidential fellow, I am honored to have the opportunity to draw from the wealth of knowledge and wisdom shared by accomplished leaders in international education,” Wang said. “I am eager and committed to leveraging this great opportunity to contribute to the ongoing development of TU as a dynamic and globally engaged university.”
Also selected were James Bolender of University of San Diego, Judy Peter of Cape Peninsula University of Technology, and Roopa Rawjee of Illinois State University.
