Center Director Dan Terris Named the Associate Vice President for Global Affairs


May 9, 2007

Please join the Center in congratulating Director Dan Terris, recently named the Associate Vice President for Global Affairs. The Office of Global Affairs (OGA) is a newly-created department charged with developing a strategic vision for the university's international activities. It will also serve to enhance cooperation among academic units across the university that have a global focus, link academic and administrative offices serving international students, visitors, and scholars, and work with the Office of Communications to compile and disseminate information for internal and external constituencies. Dan will officially undertake these responsibilities on July 1, 2007, in conjunction with his work here at the Center.

This formation of OGA follows one of the suggestions of an ad hoc group of faculty and administrators convened in spring 2006 to consider the strengths and challenges of Brandeis as a global institution. More information on the work of this ad hoc group can be found at www.brandeis.edu/provost/.
