Dr. Andrew Law was appointed as the Academic Dean of The College of Global Studies in January 2015. He is a leading figure in the international education community with more than 23 years of experience, including administrative positions in education abroad at the University of Minnesota, Macalester College, Lawrence University, and Denison University and leadership roles with NAFSA: Association of International Educators, the Forum on Education Abroad, and the Higher Education Association for Urban Affairs.
Drawing on this extensive experience, Dr. Law leads the efforts of The College to develop education abroad opportunities that serve a diverse group of students through providing opportunities to amplify and extend their undergraduate and graduate educational programs, offering global learning opportunities that stimulate and challenge their world views, broaden their notions of where they may work and contribute, and provide a context where learners can assume greater responsibility for their lives and choices.
Dr. Law holds an AB from Georgetown University and a Ph.D from the University of Minnesota in American Studies. His current intellectual interests focus on how to construct explicit linkages between the educational purposes of experiential learning in education abroad contexts and the pedagogical and formational imperatives of a liberal education. He has published and presented widely on this topic and is a well-known expert regarding the intersection of experiential, international, and liberal education.
Dr. Law is also the proud parent of two engaging and intellectually curious youngsters, a responsibility that he shares with his wife of twenty-seven years.
