UW-Whitewater names global education director
March 22, 2012
Candace Chenoweth has been named Director of the Center for Global Education at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater.
Chenoweth comes to UW-Whitewater from Washington State University, where she served as associate director of global learning.
"Candance Chenoweth's experience in fostering international learning, teaching, research and service, and her collaborative spirit fit well with our campus commitment to global engagement," said Beverly Kopper, provost. "I am pleased to have someone with Candace's knowledge and vision provide leadership in this critical area for our university."
"I also want to express my deep appreciation to Anne Hamilton for her fine service as interim director," Kopper said. "Anne has accomplished a lot in her time at the center and has helped moved it forward in a positive direction."
As director, Chenoweth will oversee UW-Whitewater's study abroad and exchange agreements, international student and faculty immigration matters, and faculty-led travel studies.
"I really enjoyed the interactions I had with UW-Whitewater faculty, staff and students during the interview process," Chenoweth said. "Everyone seems eager to infuse the educational experience both on and off campus with international dimensions that prepare students for leadership in an ever more complex and connected world. I'm looking particularly forward to collaborating with faculty to ensure that the activities of the Center for Global Education support each college's academic mission."
She will begin her duties on June 25.
