Meet the CGL Staff

Elaine Meyer-Lee

Associate Vice President for Global Learning and Leadership Development
Buttrick Hall 104B


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 the past 12 years directed, the Center for Women’s Intercultural Leadership at Saint Mary’s College in Notre Dame, IN.
