As the PLU Gateway faculty representative, the Program Director assists the Wang Center for Global and Community Engaged Education in identifying and recommending program site-directors and on-site faculty and support, in developing curricula and co-curricular activities, and in marketing and outreach to PLU and non-PLU faculty and students.

All Program Director appointments are contingent on approval of the applicant’s chair, dean, and the provost.
