As part of the ACE Internationalization Lab, LSU's Office of International Programs is pleased to host a virtual guest speaker, Dr. Margee Ensign. She serves as the current President of the American University of Nigeria (AUN) after stepping down from her role as the President of Dickinson College in Pennsylvania. Throughout her years of service in the international education field, Dr. Ensign has been an impactful leader in supporting her students and campus community. In 2014, she and AUN security embarked on a dangerous mission to rescue 22 girls and their parents from Boko Haram, a terrorist organization which had kidnapped over 250 female students. Learn more about her experience and her mission to expand AUN as a “development” university, focusing on directly and immediately impacting the local community.. . . .
