Notre Dame International has appointed Joshua Copeland the new executive director of the University of Notre Dame (USA) in England (UNDE), which hosts the London Global Gateway. Copeland, who currently serves as the director of student affairs for UNDE, will work in collaboration with academic leaders to create new research collaborations, partnerships and initiatives at the London Global Gateway. He will also manage the administration and operations of the Gateway.
Copeland has been an integral member of the London Global Gateway during the past seven years, supporting students, parents, alumni and partners in London both as the director of student affairs and rector of Conway Hall. He has also facilitated programs that help promote understanding and advance knowledge, including the recent acquisition of the G.K. Chesterton Collection. Copeland helped steer this project, along with academic leaders, to provide a gathering point for intellectual life in the UK.
“Josh’s excellent leadership in supporting our students and creating community, his success in building meaningful relationships with local partners in London, and his embodiment of the mission and values of UNDE make him the perfect candidate to be the next executive director,” said Michael Pippenger, vice president and associate provost for internationalization.
“We are thrilled that he will take up this position and continue to help UNDE flourish in the months and years to come.”
