Value of international education topic for BYU lecture Sept. 10

Lynn Elliott, director of International Study Programs at the David M. Kennedy Center for International Studies at Brigham Young University, will discuss the value of academic study abroad on Wednesday, Sept. 10, at noon in 238 Herald R. Clark Building.

Elliott returned to BYU as assistant director of the Kennedy Center and ISP director in 2004, having been the International Center associate director and study abroad director at Utah Valley University since 2001. Prior to that, he coordinated tours with BYU’s Performing Arts Management in more than 40 countries, including groundbreaking tours to Vietnam, Indonesia, Armenia and West Africa.

He received a bachelor’s degree in economics from BYU. By the time he left BYU with a master’s degree in international relations, Elliott had toured 20 countries and decided to pursue a career in international education.

This lecture will be archived online. For more information, contact Lee Simons at lee_simons@byu.edu or (801) 422-2652. To view the Kennedy Center events calendar, visit kennedy.byu.edu.
