Deborah McAllister

CANIE Role: Vice President
Job title: Project Manager
Organization: Universitas 21
Location: UK

I am currently contracting for Universitas 21, a global network of research-intensive universities, leading the development and implementation of strategic projects for the network and its members. Prior to this I spent 6½ years at the University of Auckland, leading on global engagement and partnership activity and more recently overseeing the inbound and outbound student mobility, international student support and global relations teams.

With more than 15 years’ experience in relationship and partnership development in international education I bring experience of strategic and external engagement with international networks and global partnerships and have formerly held roles in marketing and admissions, widening participation, student volunteering and business development.

I’m an advocate for sustainability and want to use my skill set to support the international education sector to take the urgent action required to reduce our impact on the climate.
