UT is a distinguished recipient of the Senator Paul Simon Award for Comprehensive Internationalization and is proud to be one of the top universities recognized for overall excellence in internationalization efforts. The Associate Dean is responsible for providing strategic vision and administrative leadership for UT’s Office of International Programs (IPO).  In developing the next steps in UT’s comprehensive internationalization plan, the Associate Dean will lead IPO’s services for international students and scholars, provide support of international recruitment, education abroad, intercultural competency programs, international faculty development, and globally focused events and outreach. Responsibilities will include collaborating with university colleagues and with external constituents to represent UT’s international programs both nationally and internationally.
