Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) has appointed Jeanine Gregersen-Hermans as Pro Vice-Chancellor and Vice-Principal International.

Ms Gregersen-Hermans will drive GCU’s internationalisation agenda, an integral part of the University’s Strategy 2020.

Previously Director of Student Recruitment at the University of Hull, Ms Gregersen-Hermans has also held the positions of Director of Marketing and Communications at Maastricht University, and Dean for International Students at Wageningen University, both based in the Netherlands.

Ms Gregersen-Hermans said: “Glasgow Caledonian University understands that internationalisation is more than recruitment of international students. Now more than ever it is the role of universities to educate all its students for a globalised society and labour market.

“This is an exciting time to join Glasgow Caledonian University, with bold and ambitious aims to extend our global reach and impact. I am looking forward to working with colleagues to develop new partnerships, internationalise our community of students and staff, and enhance our commitment to educational development in emerging economies.”

Ms Gregersen-Hermans has published on topics including the marketing and internationalisation of higher education. Since 2006, she has been reviewer and member of the editorial advisory board of the Journal of Studies in International Education (JSIE).

In 2008, Ms Gregersen-Hermans received the European Association of International Education’s Bo Gregersen Award for Best Practice for her innovative contribution to international education. In 2011, she was appointed Honorary Member of the IROICA network, the standing committee for internationalisation of ICA, the European Association of Life Science Universities.

GCU is home to students from more than 100 different countries and has campuses in Glasgow, London and New York, with established educational partnerships in Oman, Bangladesh and Africa.
