Latitudes: Why an international-education leader is moving on after two decades

After two decades of leading the way in international education, a prominent figure in the sector is hanging up their hat and moving on to new challenges. Dr. Maria Rodriguez, a renowned expert in education and global citizenship, has announced her departure from her position as CEO of the International Education Institute (IEI), a leading organization that has shaped the course of international education for over 25 years.

During her tenure, Dr. Rodriguez has been instrumental in laying the foundations for the organization’s global footprint, establishing partnerships with educational institutions, governments, and organizations worldwide. Under her leadership, IEI has expanded its reach from a small non-profit organization to a global advocate for international education, providing resources, training, and support to educators, policymakers, and students worldwide.

Dr. Rodriguez’ commitment to international education has had a profound impact on the lives of millions of students, teachers, and communities worldwide. Her vision for a global education system that fosters cultural understanding, empathy, and academic excellence has inspired generations of educators, policymakers, and students. Her efforts to promote language education, cultural exchange, and experiential learning have been particularly noteworthy, and her work has helped to break down barriers and create new pathways for international collaboration.

As Dr. Rodriguez looks to the next chapter of her career, she reflects on the many accomplishments and memories she has made during her time at IEI. “It has been an honor to lead an organization that has made such a profound impact on the world of education,” she said. “I am proud of the work we have done, but I am also excited to take on new challenges and continue to make a difference in the world in my own way.”
