Global PACT Team
Global PACT staff, professors and trainers are the core of the organization.
The Global PACT team organizes all trainings and internships in collaboration with NGO and university partners overseas. Team members are experienced Global PACT trainers and ex-volunteers who often know their international counterparts personally.
The team is responsible for responding to all potential participant and volunteer inquiries, managing the paperwork of those who enroll, and handling any issues that arise during a training or volunteer commitment. They also run the American office and arrange the logistics for programs.
Global PACT professors and assistant directors are the backbone of international program. Our professors are tenured or tenure track professors at leading liberal arts colleges and major universities (Lafayette College, Rutgers University, University of Michigan). They are generally field experts who teach the core course, act as faculty advisers and look after the safety of participants.
Assistant directors represent the local host institution and co-teach the training. Where the host is a university, the assistant director is a member of faculty; where it is an NGO, the assistant director is often the executive or associate director of the organization. Assistant directors not only teach, but organize the training's excursions, connections to local organizations and government, and local logistics.
