The Office of International Education (OIE) welcomes a new staff member to our office, Derrick Alex, director of International Recruitment and Partnerships.
Alex comes to IUP from Pacific University, Oregon, where he was director of International Recruitment and Admissions for four years. Before that, he served as director of International Admissions for the University of Colorado–Denver and Anschultz Medical Campus for eight years.
Alex offers a wide range of expertise to the OIE, and we look forward to welcoming to IUP more international students and scholars from an even broader range of countries and academic disciplines. Alex will also oversee the International Student and Scholar Services area that involves immigration, programming, events, and advising.
Alex came to the U.S. as an international student from India to pursue his MBA. This personal experience helps him relate and also effectively connect with international students who are interested in pursuing higher education opportunities in the United States.
Please join us in welcoming Derrick, his wife, Preeti, their children Annalise and Aurelian, and their pet dog, Gems, to the IUP community.
