Amideast Education Abroad Programs are administered by a collaborative team of Field Office and Washington, D.C. Headquarters staff and faculty.

This team of education abroad professionals and academics supports Amideast students with their health and safety, academics, language acquisition, intercultural development, cultural adjustment, and logistics.

Amideast Education Abroad staff members possess a wealth of knowledge about the Middle East and North Africa region. They have served as Peace Corps volunteers, Fulbright Fellows, founders of non-profit organizations, teachers, researchers, and program administrators. While our staff members come from diverse cultures and backgrounds, they share a common passion for the peoples and cultures of the Middle East and North Africa.
