Since graduating from the Monterey Institute in 1983, Jay Ward (MA in International Policy Studies) has spent the majority of his career in the field of international education. During that time, he has held various positions in international admissions, recruitment, international student advising, and international education administration at several universities.
Jay has been at San Francisco State University since 1994 where he currently serves as the Associate Director of the Office of International Programs. Jay feels very fortunate that his career has given him the opportunity to travel extensively overseas. He has either lived, studied or traveled to many countries throughout Europe and Asia.
He has also been actively involved with the professional association, NAFSA: Association of International Educators, having served on both the Region XII and Northern District teams. He is also a member of NAFSA's Professional Development Program Trainer Corps and has served as both a presenter and moderator at numerous NAFSA workshops and conferences at the local, regional and national levels.
