ALL STUDENTS AT UCSD
I am pleased to announce the appointment of Lynn C. Anderson as Dean of International Education and Director of the UCSD International Center, effective January 22, 2007. Lynn will succeed Mary Dhooge, who is retiring after 33 years of distinguished service to the campus.
Lynn is currently Associate Director of the Learning Abroad Center and Director of Curriculum Integration at the University of Minnesota with primary responsibility for supporting internationalization of the campus and integrating study abroad into all majors. Her accomplishments include co-authoring and directing a $3 million grant-funded project to develop and implement a national model of curriculum integration of study abroad, transforming academic advising in all majors to incorporate study abroad in degree programs.
The University of Minnesota is widely recognized as a leader in the field of international student scholar services, study abroad, and campus internationalization. With over 2100 students abroad on credit-bearing programs, it ranks 5th nationally among research institutions. Last year, Minnesota also hosted 3,384 international students in additional to 1,196 international research scholars.
Lynn has an extensive background advising, teaching, and presenting workshops for international students. Lynn studied abroad in Germany, has a BA in German from Hamline University, and two Masters Degrees from the University of Minnesota-one in German and the other in English as a Second Language. She taught music in Germany for two years after college and, on multiple occasions, was the faculty advisor to groups of undergraduates conducting independent research in Germany. She is also a certified mediator and cross-cultural trainer. Lynn is also highly regarded within the international education community, and has presented at numerous national conferences. We are looking forward to Ms. Anderson assuming the position of Dean of International Education and Director of the International Center. Please join us in welcoming her to our campus.
