Faculty Chair Welcome:

As the faculty chair of the International Studies Residential College, let me tell you a bit about the place; what ISRC offers is that many of our residents come from nations across the globe whose interests range from, well, international studies to communications to engineering to psychology. I come from journalism, in a manner of speaking, as an author and former investigative reporter at The Washington Post. At ISRC, we have so much to offer: weekly munchies. Cultural excursions. International Film Night. Philanthropy events. Seminars. Language lunch tables. And fireside chats with esteemed faculty members; indeed, we’re fortunate to have scores of faculty members who serve as fellows, participating in the intellectual and social life of ISRC. Please take a close look at ISRC’s website, and I’m sure you’ll see it’s a special place.
