Study Abroad

Matt Yates


Ph.D. in History, Ohio State University, 2011

M.A. in History, Ohio State University, 2007

Certificate in Mandarin Chinese, Fudan University, 2007

B.A. in History and Individualized Major in Global Governance, Indiana University, 2005

Since August 2012, I have served as the Curriculum Integration Advisor in the Study Abroad Office at Kansas State University. In Fall 2014, I also became the Faculty-Led Programs Coordinator and started teaching LEAD 502 - Global Citizenship, a course that explores the ethical dimensions of intercultural experiences. The course is now part of the Not All Those Who Wander Are Lost CAT Community, a first-year experience program that last year included a study tour to Hong Kong and in Spring 2017 will travel to Paris. Before moving to Kansas, I was an adjunct lecturer in history at The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio, where I also received my M.A. and Ph.D. in U.S. international history; and attended Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana, where I earned my B.A. in history and global governance. I served as an intern in Parliament of Canada on a faculty-led program in Summer 2003 and studied Mandarin Chinese at Fudan University in Shanghai, China, in Summer 2007. Originally from Northwest Indiana, I spent much of my childhood in and around Chicago. I now live in Manhattan with my partner, Leigh E. Fine, who serves as an Assistant Professor in the Staley School of Leadership Studies; and my very sociable cat, Chico.
