Elaine Meyer-Lee

Associate Vice President for Global Learning and Leadership Development
Buttrick Hall 103A


Elaine is delighted to bring her experience in, knowledge of, and passion for women’s global and leadership education to the innovative Summit initiative. Initially motivated by the transformative impact of her studies abroad in France and Haiti, she earned a doctorate in human development and psychology from Harvard University. There she began her studies of college student development around issues of difference (international and domestic) and the effects of intercultural education. Elaine publishes and presents nationally and internationally on these topics, as well as on international and women’s education leadership. She helped found, and for 12 years directed, the Center for Women’s Intercultural Leadership at Saint Mary’s College in Notre Dame, IN.




Gundolf Graml

Assistant Dean for Global Learning
Associate Professor of German Studies

Buttrick Hall 104B



Gundolf’s passion for connecting across geographical, cultural, and disciplinary borders played a major role in his move to the United States after earning an M.A. in history and German literature in his native country, Austria. Gundolf subsequently received a Ph.D. in German cultural studies from the University of Minnesota and has since published widely on the connections between traveling, tourism, and identity. These topics have also shaped his teaching career at Agnes Scott College, where his courses range from beginning German language classes to seminars on German film, Afro-German history and culture, and Global Journeys courses to Austria and Hungary. Following his work in the design and implementation of Agnes Scott’s Summit global learning curriculum, Gundolf enjoys supporting current and future Scotties as they begin to navigate their own paths in the world.
