Bryn Mawr alumna Susan Sutton ’69 will be returning to the College in January as a special consultant. She will serve as the College’s Senior Advisor for International Initiatives, announced Bryn Mawr President Jane McAuliffe today.
Sutton is currently Associate Vice President of International Affairs at Indiana University and Associate Vice Chancellor of International Affairs at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis. She is also the president-elect of the Association of International Education Administrators (AIEA), on whose executive board she has served since 2005.
AIEA is the only U.S. professional organization to focus exclusively on the needs and issues facing senior leaders in the field of international education development. The organization has made significant contributions to the growth of international education and outreach, institution building, research collaboration, and public diplomacy.
“Susan’s experience in facilitating international engagement and forging strategic partnerships, her understanding of the complex issues involved with the overall globalization of higher education, and her commitment to Bryn Mawr and its values will be invaluable resources as the College moves forward,” said McAuliffe in making the announcement.
In recent years, Bryn Mawr College has pursued, and continues to explore, a number of mutually advantageous relationships with academic institutions in Europe, Asia and the Middle East. At the same time, Bryn Mawr’s student body has continued to become more internationally diverse — a record 25.6 percent of the class of 2014 is composed of international students.
“Bryn Mawr is a world-class institution with worldwide reach,” says Sutton. “Its longstanding commitment to insuring talented women access to the highest levels of education now resonates on a global stage. By building on its existing international relationships, the College can be a powerful voice in shaping the global system of higher education that is emerging. I am excited to join Bryn Mawr in thinking through its approach to the important global issues in front of us.”
