After 17 years of dedicated service, Sue Crust, GEO’s longtime Angers, France, site director, has announced her retirement following our Spring Semester 2018 program. We wish her all the best and thank her for her many years of service to our students.
Upon Sue’s departure, GEO’s long-term relationship with CIDEF, the excellent international language institute of the Université Catholique de l’Ouest, will continue as a direct enroll program option beginning in Summer 2018. During this transitional period, GEO will maintain close ties with the CIDEF administration, particularly on issues requiring student support.
In the meantime, GEO plans to establish an expanded presence in France, including a new country-wide Site Director based in Paris. This model will allow GEO to develop additional programs in France and expand faculty led opportunities for GEO’s institutional partners. Students from partner campuses who wish to participate in the Angers direct-enroll program through GEO will continue to receive 24/7 risk management support from our Eugene, Oregon office as well as maintain their insurance through GEO for the duration of their program.
