This year’s class includes:

The Global Teaching Academy will facilitate international course offerings on campus, complementing the recent growth of study abroad courses and exchange programs offered overseas. The Academy will also assist in creating an international minor for those students not currently served by an international concentration within their disciplines. Members were also inducted into the Phi Beta Delta Honorary Society for International Scholars.
