I’ve been involved in AACRAO’s Electronic Database for Global Education (EDGE) since its inception, serve as its editor and am a member of the International Education Standards Council (IESC).
I was also part of the AACRAO Russia Project, during which the Russian contingent of eight faculty and MOE officials split into two groups to visit US institutions of every type in New York (Joann Stedman hosting) and Los Angeles (Gloria Nathanson and I co-hosted). I was one of six US representatives who visited Moscow and St. Petersburg. Upon our return, we were very lucky to have Chris Foley step in and supplement our on-the-ground interviews and observations with academic and historical background, which led to an outstanding publication with Chris as editor par excellence.
