The first students affected by its study abroad requirement are juniors this year and, of about 300, 95 percent have already studied abroad or are signed up for programs this summer or in the January term, said Daniel Norton, associate dean of the Office of International Studies. That leaves about 15 with whom the college is still working, Norton said, some of whom may be postponing their graduation until December 2010 for other reasons.

Two or three students petitioned for and were granted exemptions based on something documented, like a medical condition. Those granted exemptions still need to complete an off-campus experience through the career development office, Norton said.
In terms of practical considerations, Goucher provides a $1,200 voucher to help students pay for study abroad. Another obstacle the college has run into, aside from financial ones, is how to help students with low grade point averages access study abroad, as many programs have minimum GPA requirements.
"We've learned a lot as we've implemented this and worked through those exceptional cases of students either with medical issues or financial issues," Norton said. "Certainly a student's financial situation shouldn't be a deterrent to them studying abroad, but how we navigate that has really been an ongoing development, as with students with lower GPAs, how we can work to ensure they have a good study abroad experience. It's developing enough programs for the students, with enough variety [in terms] of locations and program length."
At the same time, Norton said, "There have been some interesting changes where I think we're recruiting more students who are coming to Goucher because of our study abroad requirement.

Dr. Daniel P. Norton, director of the Office of International Programs (OIP), said the consortium did a lot of extensive work with the Middle East. Norton said OIP has not really worked with the consortium but would look forward if the two programs were able to find a common goal and work toward it.

"It is a good opportunity to expand our international incentives," Norton said.

www.thepinelog.com [cached]

Dr. Daniel Norton, currently director of international programs at Muskingum College in New Concord, Ohio, will take over as director of the office of international studies and programs starting Sept. 1.He will replace Dr. Leon Hallman, who is retiring.

"This is a tremendous opportunity and I'm really looking forward to working with the administration, faculty, staff and students of SFA," Norton said.
He said he has a variety of plans for the OISP.
"As director of the OISP, I've been given a clear charge to build on the outstanding ground breaking efforts of the current director, Dr. Leon Hallman," Norton said."I've been given the chance to lead the effort to internationalize SFA by recruiting more undergraduate and graduate international students, developing and promoting student and faculty exchanges and promoting international content in the curriculum."The Office of International Studies and Programs will also continue to provide orientation, programming and advocacy for international students and faculty, coordinate the schedules and activities of international visitors and facilitate international programming for the campus and community."
He said he decided to apply for the position after reading the job description.
"When I read the position description, it seemed like a perfect match for me, and that evening a close friend and colleague visited our home," Norton said."When I mentioned the position at SFA, he related that he had spoken there for a conference and found it to be a beautiful campus and encouraged me to apply."
He said visiting the campus also helped him with his decision.
"When I visited SFA, I was very impressed," Norton said.
He believes SFA is full of potential.
"Your University is really a gem - a beautiful campus, excellent faculty, strong academic programs, affordable tuition costs, with access to Houston and Dallas, two of the ten biggest cities in the US," Norton said.
Norton received his doctorate from Indiana University of Pennsylvania and his master's from the University of South Florida.He said his experiences with international students make him uniquely qualified.
"I have many years of experience in teaching and advising international students and have taught students from over 100 different countries to date, which has helped me understand how to best promote and support international and intercultural study," Norton said.
In addition, he served on the English faculty at the American University of Sharjah in the United Arab Emirates from 1999 to 2002.
"Teaching at AUS was such an enriching experience," Norton said."I was also fortunate to be part of many program-building experiences there as enrollment increased from 900 students to over 3,000 students in those three years.The faculty and students were so diverse and that experience really reinforced for me the tremendous, life-changing value of teaching and learning overseas."
Besides serving as director of international programs, Norton is also an assistant professor of modern languages at Muskingum College.
