Tim has been a strong advocate of intensive language and intercultural education since experiencing firsthand their potential to give students a new perspective on the world and promote meaningful relationships across borders. After graduating from Middlebury College, Tim was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship to conduct research on education in China and had the pleasure of attending Chinese elementary school as a college graduate. His 10-month grant turned into a four year journey that included time studying at the Hopkins-Nanjing Center and working as assistant director at Middlebury School in China-Hangzhou. Upon returning to the states, Tim established the Chinese language program at an independent school in North Carolina and organized summer academic enrichment programs for high school students from around the world as a program manager at Yale’s Office of International Affairs before joining the fellowships team at the Center for International and Professional Experience.
