To the OSU Community:
I am pleased to inform you that I have appointed Dr. Danny Damron as the International Degree and Education Abroad Program Director, effective August 15, 2012.
Dr. Damron comes to Oregon State University with several years of internationalization experience. His administrative leadership experience includes director of Utah Valley University’s (UVU) International Center and founding director of Brigham Young University’s (BYU) European Governance Internships program. Both positions have provided valuable experience in crafting a vision congruent with university academic mission, identifying strategic opportunities, developing programs, obtaining funding, building consensus, and initiating new relationships.
Dr. Damron received his Ph.D. in Comparative Politics at Purdue University, an M.A.T. in English as a second language at the School for International Training, and a B.A. in Political Science at BYU.
Dr. Damron’s teaching competencies are in comparative politics, international relations, democratization, social movements, East Asian politics, research methods and political philosophy. He has several years teaching introductory comparative politics; Korea, Taiwan, and Southeast Asian politics; democracy and democratization; theories of comparative politics and a senior capstone seminar on democratic transitions and business Korean.
Please join me in congratulating Dr. Damron and acknowledging Dr. Charlotte Moats-Gallagher for serving as interim director. Charlotte will continue as International Initiatives Associate with the Division of International Programs.
