Masarah Van Eyck hired to help CALS instructors “internationalize” course content

The CALS International Programs Office has hired Masarah Van Eyck to support faculty interested in integrating international content into their undergraduate classroom curriculum. The position, funded by the Madison Initiative for Undergraduates, focuses on internationalizing the sciences across campus and is housed in the CALS Undergraduate Programs and Services Office.

Internationalizing science curriculum can take on many forms, from hosting a guest speaker to integrating new course materials to conducting a web seminar with another university. “Exposing students to diverse perspectives and methods better prepares them for a global culture,” says Dan Schaefer, Interim Associate Dean for Undergraduate Programs and Services. “Internationalizing the classroom is a way to reach each and every student in the sciences.”

Masarah comes to CALS from the Division of International Studies where she served as director of communications for three years. She holds a PhD in French history from McGill University and has worked in nonprofit communications for ten years.
