Paul Burgess

Director of International Admission
Tulane University
New Orleans, LA

I participated in international education when I was younger as a student, and quickly appreciated the greater benefits of cultural exchange. I completed undergraduate degrees in International Development and Anthropology at Tulane University, and then spent a year in Finland's Arctic through a Fulbright Grant. There, I conducted research on a variety of issues, one being education. My graduate degree brought me back to New Orleans, where I have worked for the past three years in international admission and recruitment and now serve as the Director of International Admission.
