  • Milan Awarded McGoldrick Fellowship

    January 27, 2012

    Seattle University President Stephen Sundborg, S.J. awarded the 2012-13 McGoldrick Fellowship to Professor Paul Milan. The fellowship recognizes a faculty member who exemplifies a commitment to students and the values of the Jesuit educational tradition.

    “Paul Milan has been a leader in global education for decades, well before many others recognized its value,” said David Powers, Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences.

    Milan teaches French language and literature in the Department of Modern Languages and Cultures. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Washington and joined the Arts and Sciences faculty in 1966. He has served as chair of the Modern Languages department and coordinator of the International Studies program.

    Milan co-founded and co-directs the University's French in France program in Grenoble, France. He is the faculty director for Xavier Global House where he has worked with the university’s Housing and Residential Life Office and the Fundación de Esperanza de México to establish the Xavier Global Outreach Program (XGHOP). As part of that program, Milan developed an interdisciplinary core course that deals with contemporary perspectives on the United States-Mexico border.

    The College of Arts and Sciences, the largest college in Seattle University, offers 33 undergraduate and 7 advanced degrees. The Department of Modern and Languages and Cultures includes degrees in French, Spanish, German, Italian, Chinese, and Japanese. The College also administers the Global Awareness Program, a specialization open to students of any major in any college in the university.
