A note from international students services director Mike Pelley:
After 13 great years, a farewell to Gwen Sandford, program manager for the Office of International Student Services (ISS). Gwen has accepted a new position as director of international student services at Reed College, a well-deserved promotion and a very smart move by her new employer. Gwen started at UP as the ISS program assistant, and after a few years was promoted to program manager. During her time at UP, Gwen worked tirelessly on the behalf of international students, our international community, and for the greater UP community. Her knowledge and expertise of cross-cultural communication and global education systems made her an exceptional international student advisor and admissions counselor. Her last day was July 10. Best wishes to Gwen!
