Working in the international office is a great opportunity to help Rhodes students realize that they have an incredible opportunity to study abroad. We not only assist the staff of the Buckman Center but also work with students in the initial stages of their study abroad experiences. We help students pick out program brochures and give them advice on selecting programs, based on our experiences as past or preparing-to-be study abroad students, while addressing basic questions about the process of study abroad at Rhodes.
International Education (Buckman Center)
After a 40-year hiatus I have returned to Rhodes as the Coordinator of the Buckman International Studies Initiative, which seeks to provide premier experiential learning opportunities for Rhodes International Studies majors. Having graduated from Rhodes (then Southwestern at Memphis) in 1971 as an IS major, I received my PhD in Government and International Studies from the University of South Carolina and joined the faculty of Le Moyne College, in Syracuse, New York.
