New Executive Director for the Center for International Service

August 07, 2013 2:39 pm

It is with great pleasure that we announce the arrival of Dr. Stephen Ferst as the new Executive Director for the Center for International Service. Dr. Ferst was recommended by a search committee composed of faculty and staff and chaired by Dr. Nan Sussman. Faculty representatives included members of the advisory board for the Center.

Dr. Ferst has very deep experience in international education, including: 12 years as Director of Study Abroad at Rutgers University with previous service as the Assistant Director at Rutgers; Resident Director of Rutgers Study Abroad in the UK and Ireland; Director of Institutional Relations and Development with the Education Abroad Network; and Director of the Center for International Studies at Kean University (his most recent position).

In addition, Dr. Ferst plays a pivotal role in NAFSA: Association of International Educators and served as conference chair for the most recent conference. During the coming year, Dr. Ferst is slated to serve as a Vice President with NAFSA, which should bring many benefits to the institution.

We are very pleased to have Dr. Ferst join our team here. He is looking forward to working with faculty, staff, and students. We hope that you will take the time to drop by to say “hello” to Stephen in the Center for International Service.

At this time, we also want to thank Barbara Clark, Deputy Director of the Center, for her service as Interim Director during the past year. She handled the position with enthusiasm, collegiality, and kindness, while continuing to manage the demands of the Deputy Director position. We appreciate Barbara’s willingness to serve in this additional capacity over the last year, and we are grateful to her for her assistance in this transition. We look forward to her continued service as Deputy Director.
