Dean McQuaid to retire in March 2023

October 28, 2022

Meredith McQuaid, associate vice president and dean of international programs, has announced she will retire on March 15, 2023, capping a career of more than 30 years at the University of Minnesota rising from undergraduate student to dean of international programs.

"Meredith has served with distinction as the University’s senior international officer since 2007," said Provost Rachel Croson. "Under her leadership, GPS Alliance staff have collaborated broadly to inspire student engagement and to advance innovative initiatives uniting us all in the work of internationalization."

A national search will begin this fall to identify our next senior international officer who will continue to advance the University of Minnesota as a global leader in international teaching, research, and engagement.
