Director named to the new Center for Capacity Building in Study Abroad

The Center for Capacity Building in Study Abroad is a joint project of NAFSA and NASULGC. Margaret Heisel who is currently the Deputy Vice Provost of Academic Affairs at the University of California has been named the new Director of the Center. According to the NAFSA website, the Center will focus its support of the education abroad field by:

  • Building a rich information base to serve institutions wishing to expand their on-campus capacity rapidly, while maintaining quality.

  • Identifying opportunities in emerging, potentially high-demand study abroad markets—beyond the traditional destinations—and providing guidance on how to best access those markets responsibly.

  • Using innovative action-learning teams, convene groups of institutions experiencing rapid growth to share ideas and information, act as peer support, and foster collaboration.
