Baruch College Dean and Vice Provost
for Global Strategies Jeffrey Peck Serves as Guest Editor for IIE Networker Magazine
NEW YORK, NY- March 19, 2014 -Vice Provost for Global Strategies at Baruch College, Dean Jeffrey Peck served as guest editor of the Spring 2014 issue of IIE Networker magazine, published by the Institute of International Education.
Dean Peck and fellow co-editor Stephen Hanson, Vice Provost for International Affairs and Director of the Reves Center for International Studies at the College of William and Mary, wrote the introduction and collected an exciting group of essays on the topic, “Globalization and Its Influence on International Education.”
“As one of the largest organizations for promoting and sponsoring international education, including the prestigious Fulbright Fellowships, this magazine issue brings a more theoretical and academic perspective to a rich and lively discussion that often focuses on the important operational and administrative issues central to global education,” Dean Peck said. “Baruch’s own Strategic Plan and those of the three schools all highlight the role of global partnerships, exchanges, and collaborations for the future of the college. This issue of the IIE Networker will make a significant contribution to the debate both at Baruch and at institutions around the world.”
