Michele Petrucci, assistant vice president for International Education and Global Engagement, has been selected by the Institute of International Education to serve as a mentor in its pilot course, Connecting with the World: International Relations at Higher Education Institutions.

This course aims to familiarize university and ministry representatives in Myanmar with an overview of how to establish an international office, and the role an international office can play in linking with other institutions, establishing an international presence, and achieving other institutional goals.

As a critical part of this course, a cohort of nearly 40 individuals have volunteered to be paired with participants in Myanmar and provide virtual mentorship on a weekly basis from November 2013 through April 2014, and in an informal capacity through November 2014. These individuals are experts in their field, have experience working in an international office, and include professionals from a range of countries, including the U.S., Canada, Thailand, and Indonesia.
