Marcelo Sabates appointed associate provost for international programs
Following an internal search during the fall, I am pleased to announce the appointment of Marcelo Sabates as associate provost for international programs, effective Jan. 19. Sabates has served as the interim associate provost since July 2011.
Sabates took over the leadership of the office of international programs at a particularly critical time and has worked tirelessly with faculty and staff across the university to respond to our growing international student needs, as well as the needs of visiting scholars and partners from around the world. He played a key role in the development of the K-State 2025 Internationalization Strategic Action Plan and its initial implementation; working collaboratively to increase study abroad opportunities and participation, to diversify the international students choosing Kansas State for their undergraduate education, and to forge new and highly visible relationships with top-rated international institutions of higher education.
Please join me in congratulating Marcelo Sabates.
