Cedarville, Ohio-Wilberforce resident Dr. Andrew Wiseman was recently named director of travel studies at Cedarville University. He also serves as assistant professor of Spanish. One of Wiseman`s priorities will be brokering academic exchange programs between Cedarville University and foreign institutions. He had previously negotiated an agreement between Cedarville and the Universidad de Sevilla in Spain. The most recent project he coordinated was an exchange program with Handong Global University in Pohang, South Korea. Wiseman is currently working on developing connections in central Asia. Wiseman has extensive travel experience, having lived, worked, and/or studied in 39 different countries. He received his B.A. from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, and also studied at the Universidad de Sevilla in Spain and the Universidad Internacional SEK in Santiago, Chile. He holds an M.A. from Florida State University and a Ph.D. from the Universidad de San Jose, in San Jose, Costa Rica. A Fulbright Scholar, Wiseman came to Cedarville in 2000. Dr. Bob Milliman, incoming academic vice president at Cedarville University, shared, "Dr. Wiseman is an avid international traveler with a unique understanding of the value of international education. I am anxious to watch him use his considerable skills in the field of travel studies not only to manage the current scope of the department, but also to expand its programs and their influence on the Cedarville campus." "I look forward to expanding study abroad options for our faculty and students," Wiseman stated, "as well as strengthening the academic, professional, and cultural experiences of our existing programs." -30-
