Job title: Director of Faculty-Led Study Abroad Global Affairs
Organization: San Diego State University
Location: USA

I have supported students and faculty members engage in international experiences since 2008 helping thousands participate in short-term programs. While academically important and often personally transformational, I have a hard time convincing myself that the benefits of these programs outweigh their contribution to the global climate crisis.

It’s past time for the talented people in the sector to create and implement strategies to mitigate the negative environmental impacts of our work; both broadly and on our campuses. I’m delighted to partner with others in the CANIE network to influence the future of the field toward this goal.
