Recent Accomplishments

  • Member of national selection committee for Boren Foundation Language Scholars.
  • Frequent lecturer on India, Afghanistan, and Pakistan.
  • Media source on Near East and South Asia.
  • Curriculum consultant for schools and colleges.

Previous Work

Prof. Wood's international career began with an appointment to the U.S. Information Agency and five years abroad as a trainee and as a cultural officer for that agency. Those experiences gave him his first opportunity to observe how Americans (including himself) behave when working abroad. Those experiences led him to a doctoral program at MIT that focused on applied research in international affairs.

An academic appointment at American University in Washington, D.C., followed, which gave him the opportunity to work with national agencies and other international organizations as a consultant and trainer, including two years as the South Asia trainer for the State Department’s Foreign Service Institute. And then it was on to Monterey in 1980, when he became the Institute’s academic dean.
