New CIE Director Chosen
May 2, 2007
Professor Claire Malarte-Feldman has been named the new
director of the Center for International Education and will
assume the duties of her three-year term effective July
1. She will succeed professor Ted Howard who has served
with great distinction in this role since 2001.
Malarte-Feldman is professor of French in the department
of languages, literatures, and cultures, and brings many
years of international experience to the position. She has
developed and taught numerous courses that are part of the
disciplinary and interdisciplinary international curriculum
including a very popular Inquiry course.
The former chair of the department of French and Italian
and current-co-chair of the Teaching Technology in the Liberal
Arts Committee, Malarte-Feldman has accrued substantial
administrative experience around the university in her many
years as a faculty member.
An international citizen equally at home in France and
the United States, Malarte-Feldman enjoys long-standing
professional ties with university colleagues in Europe.
IN 2001, she established and directed the UNH Study-in-Dijon
Program, and for the past five years, has established strong
working relations with her colleagues at the Universite
de Bourgogne and the Centre International d’Etudes
Francaises in Dijon.
Malarte-Feldman is eager to work to advance all dimensions
of the international programs and educational initiatives
across the university to meet what she describes as “the
challenges of life in ‘the global village.’”
