College of Science dean takes on ‘global engagement’ responsibilities

College of Science Dean Mary Hubbard, newly appointed vice provost for Global Engagement, will begin work to improve campus international relations and increase global awareness starting Oct. 1. “I am looking forward to working with students on campus and people across the state and at other institutions both locally and worldwide,” Hubbard said. “I look forward to sharing Utah State University with the world.” The position will require oversight of education and international activities occurring at USU as well as study abroad and international service-learning programs, Hubbard said. “I’ll be working to bring in and host international students,” Hubbard said. “We’ll work to help them with immigration and visas, help them to find housing and transportation options for their stay here as well as connect them with other students from their country.” Hubbard said she plans to increase the amount of global content in campus curricula so that students who do not have the chance to participate in Study Abroad programs will still leave the university with international exposure that will aid them in the growing global community.
