Giorgio DiMauro’s role in the Office of the Provost is to enhance and broaden Barnard’s engagement with the world. He supports faculty interested in expanding their teaching and research to include global partners and perspectives, both internationally as well as through the rich global networks of New York City. He helps to organize and fund faculty-led programs abroad, negotiate agreements with international partners, and provide travel advice and emergency support for faculty abroad. Giorgio is the faculty liaison for the Fulbright Scholars Program and the Responsible Officer (RO) for all international scholars and faculty coming to Barnard, providing visa processing and local support. He also works closely with the President and the faculty on Barnard’s annual Global Symposium which, in conjunction with local partners and alumnae, addresses a global challenge in a particular world region. Giorgio comes to Barnard from Rutgers University, where he directed the Center for Global Education and taught in the Program for Russian and East European Languages and Literatures. Prior to that he worked in the Office of International Programs at Princeton and Harvard Universities. He holds a Ph.D. in Slavic Languages and Literatures from Harvard University and an A.B. in Russian Literature from Reed College.
