Matthew Yates

Director

Education Abroad


I became Director of Education Abroad in May 2019 and previously had served as the Interim Director since November 2018 and Associate Director since August 2017. After I received my Ph.D. in international history from The Ohio State University in August 2011, I joined Education Abroad at Kansas State University as its Curriculum Integration Advisor and then Assistant Director. I’ve designed and taught several short-term programs abroad for faculty and students and enjoy working with all university stakeholders on their intercultural development. I live in Hartford with my partner, Leigh Fine, the Assistant Director of Honors Program at UConn; and sociable cat, Chico.
