International Studies and Programs at Michigan State University has appointed Ashley Green as assistant dean for administration, effective April 4.
In this role, Green will provide leadership in the implementation and administration of international programs and global initiatives that advance and strengthen university wide missions related to research, instructional, outreach and engagement activities.
“Dr. Green brings to ISP an ideal blend of international, operational and program development experience,” said Steven Hanson, associate provost and dean of international studies and programs. “Her enthusiasm for international work and her passion for pursing new partnerships and opportunities will bring enormous value to the ISP leadership team.”
Green’s experience in higher education administration and student affairs spans more than a decade. Currently, she is the director of scholarships for the National and International Fellowships and Scholarships Office within MSU’s Honors College, where she leads the daily operations of the office and assists students in pursing national and international funding awards. Before joining NIFS, Green was the program manager for the Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship program in the Center for Advanced Study of International Development within ISP. Her higher education administration experience also includes roles at Grand Valley State University, the University of Toledo and the University of California, Berkeley.
“I am thrilled at the opportunity to contribute to ISP’s efforts to expand and deepen MSU’s role as a leader in international research, scholarship and global collaboration,” Green said. “MSU works at the forefront of global engagement, responding to the world’s emerging issues and global goals, and I look forward to advancing the university’s mission as part of ISP.”
Green earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology from MSU; a master’s degree in higher education student affairs from the University of Toledo; and a doctorate in educational leadership and administration from Western Michigan University. Her doctoral research and dissertation focused on the experiences and motivation of successful African American first generation college students.
