Chris is the Associate Director of Global Studies. In this role, he works with both incoming international students and outgoing U.S. students studying abroad. Chris believes strongly in the importance of global perspective in education. He has spent 20 years in the study abroad field, including 18 years at Arcadia University as Program Manager for 10 countries on 3 continents, and a year at Temple University overseeing global visa activities for students and faculty. He lived in the Philippines for 3 years, teaching at the International School of Manila, and counseling for the crisis line at the In Touch Foundation. Chris earned his B.S. in Education from West Chester University of Pennsylvania. He grew up in the Philadelphia area and is fortunate to have spent a significant amount of time during his childhood with family in northern Greece, which began his love of travel and global learning.
When not working with students, Chris plays guitar in a local band, spends as much time as possible at the beach, and follows the Philadelphia sports scene (especially the Union and Flyers).
