He has held leadership roles at several public and private colleges and universities, most recently as Assistant Dean of the Graduate School at Binghamton University (SUNY). Alex is currently the president and senior evaluator at Ucredo, a credential evaluation and translation company based in Florida.

Eve Bonner: Eve originally grew up in Taiwan and came to the US for pursuing a higher education from the University of Kansas (MS ED). Currently Eve works as the chief credential evaluator at Iowa State University for undergraduate programs, including non-degree programs. There is a learner in Eve that finds life-long learning is not an option rather a necessity. As she set her path to be an educator and a cultural ambassador, Eve sees that issues in schools are actually issues rooted in our education system, which need to be addressed as our collective social responsibility, transcending school boundary and party politics. Eve believes international education and cultural exchange are great tools to broaden our worldview and cultivate a global citizenship.
