Dr. William B. Lacy
AIEA 2010 Conference Chair & President-Elect
Vice Provost of University Outreach and International Programs at University of California, Davis
The role of the AIEA in providing leadership for internationalizing higher education in the U.S. and abroad will only increase in the future. As the world becomes more complex and interconnected, it is critical that our colleges and universities effectively engage in international research, outreach and collaboration and prepare our graduates to be proficient in foreign languages, knowledgeable of different cultures, and informed about international and global citizenship. I believe that the AIEA is well positioned and is one of the best professional organizations to help campus leaders successfully pursue these key goals.
