Sara Easler has joined the University of Tennessee, Knoxville’s Haslam College of Business as director of international programs and study abroad. She began the newly created role at the beginning of August.
Easler comes to Haslam from the Darla Moore School of Business at the University of South Carolina, where she was director of business study abroad and managing director of the international business undergraduate major. She is currently a Ph.D. candidate in higher education administration at the University of South Carolina.
Easler’s responsibilities at Haslam will include identifying international options for academic exchanges, internships and community service, said Lane Morris, associate dean of undergraduate programs and student affairs.
“Sara will provide leadership in assisting us to develop a new international programs unit,” Morris said. “She will build on existing global partnerships to create a new portfolio of international programs and services that will enable our students to achieve higher value-added educational outcomes and career progression opportunities.”
Easler will collaborate with Haslam faculty and departmental leaders as well as UT entities such as the Center for International Education to leverage resources and better serve students, Morris said.
