Noel Fallows, an administrator with a proven record of fostering international partnerships in research, instruction and outreach, has been named associate provost for international education at the University of Georgia.
Fallows has been serving as interim associate provost for international education since February and was previously associate dean of international and multidisciplinary programs in UGA's Franklin College of Arts and Sciences.
“Throughout his career, Dr. Fallows has forged connections that open doors of discovery and opportunity,” said Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost Pamela Whitten. “I am confident that he will build upon UGA's national leadership in providing study abroad opportunities while continuing to create mutually beneficial partnerships that advance research, scholarship and service.”
Fallows, a Distinguished Research Professor of Spanish in the department of Romance languages, joined the UGA faculty in 1992 as an assistant professor. As associate provost for international education, he oversees nearly 200 university-level partnerships in more than 50 countries, as well as 180 study abroad programs and more than 50 international exchange programs with collective enrollments in excess of 2,500 students per year. UGA's Office of International Education also oversees residential study abroad programs in Cortona, Italy; San Luis de Monteverde, Costa Rica; and Oxford, United Kingdom; as well as immigration services for international students and visiting scholars.
