In December 2019, Dr. Nick Kachiroubas, Associate Teaching Professor in the School of Public Service, made the most of his trip to Thailand by building and strengthening global connections. He took advantage of a pre-planned trip to Bangkok, Thailand to visit the American School of Bangkok, and the Education USA office within the US Embassy, thereby spreading the good news about DePaul University. As he told students about the positive experience of studying at DePaul University and the great city of Chicago, Nick served as a Faculty Ambassador, a program run by Global Engagement which supports DePaul's international recruitment strategies. When faculty travel abroad for personal or professional reasons, they can promote DePaul by taking a few hours to serve as a Faculty Ambassador. Nick noted that making such a visit is a great way to have fun while learning about the local culture and getting a glimpse into the life of a high school student in Bangkok.
