COBA has named Dr. Andy Little as Director of Global Programs in the College of Business Administration. In this role, Dr. Little will help craft and oversee COBA study abroad strategy and operations and will act as a resource for SITC study abroad programs and liaison to ACU’s Center for International Education (CIE). Dr. Little will help COBA identify and evaluate study abroad non-hub sites as needed and will serve as a resource for ACU hub (Oxford, Montevideo, Leipzig) and COBA/SITC non-hub faculty hosts.
Dr. Little brings a passion for study abroad, experience co-leading the COBA 2012 study abroad experience in Honduras, broad multi-disciplinary interests, and strong networking skills.
Prior to Dr. Little assuming this role, Dr. Darryl Jinkerson did prodigious work on a new study abroad philosophy and strategy for the college. He propelled us forward with his plans and networking. We are thankful too for Mike Winegeart‘s leadership for several years previously and to Stephen Shewmaker‘s ongoing partnership and leadership in the CIE for ACU study abroad.
