Congratulations to International Center Director John Greisberger, who was recently chosen as a recipient of the NAFSA Life Membership Award for his service as President to NAFSA: The Association of International Educators.
This recognition comes at a bittersweet time for those of us in Student Life at UM, as John has announced his well-earned retirement from the International Center, effective August 1, 2014, after a forty-year contribution to the field of international education.
Student Life has greatly benefited from Greisberger’s deep and broad experience in international education. From his Peace Corps roots, teaching English as a foreign language in rural Afghanistan, to his career at The Ohio State University and the University of Michigan, he has provided stellar leadership of the International Center, Student Life, and the institution at large.
Some highlights of his service have included:
All of these efforts will have a lasting impact on the University of Michigan, UM Student Life, the International Center, and in particular, on Michigan students. Thank you John, and congratulations!
