Grant Chapman appointed as assistant provost of international administration
Grant Chapman has been appointed as the new assistant provost of international administration for the Office of International Programs at Kansas State University.
Chapman currently serves as associate vice president for Academic Affairs and director for international programs at Webster University in St. Louis, Missouri. He is responsible for operational and fiscal oversight of Webster's international campuses — which educate approximately 2,000 residential undergraduate and graduate students, including several hundred education abroad students in Austria, China, Ghana, Greece, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Thailand and the United Kingdom. He also has oversight for the Office of Study Abroad, international partnerships, the Center for International Education, International Visiting Scholars and the exchange programs.
Grant received his juris doctor and master's degree in public administration from Saint Louis University, and his bachelor's degree in political science/international public administration, with a minor in history and certificate in Latin American Studies, from Oklahoma State University. Chapman also was a Fulbright scholar through the International Education Administrator Program in Japan.
"We are thrilled to appoint Grant as assistant provost of international administration," said Marcelo Sabates, associate provost in the Office of International Programs. "His demonstrated skill set in both international and administration experience will allow OIP to move forward with the internationalization goals stated in the 2025 Plan. Under his leadership at Webster, he established the first Confucius Institute in the state of Missouri, which has been named one of the 'Confucius Institutes of the Year' by Hanban in 2012 and 2014."
Chapman will begin his appointment at K-State in mid-March.
