As businesses and organizations become more international, Xavier is looking to keep pace, making sure as many international opportunities are offered to students as possible.

The push began in the summer with the hiring of a new executive director for the Center for International Education, Ismael Betancourt. He oversees the academic service learning semesters, the Office of International Student Services and the English as a Second Language program.

Born in San Juan, Puerto Rico, Betancourt came to Xavier after serving as director of education abroad at Northern Arizona University and director for the Office of International Services at Saint Louis University, where he earned both his bachelor’s and master’s degrees and is pursuing a doctorate in higher education administration.
