Posted: Tuesday, November 19, 2013
William B. Stroube, University of Evansville professor of health services administration and director of the health services administration program, has been selected to participate in an international summit on study abroad and health care issues.
The 2014 CIEE Winter Faculty Summit, hosted by CIEE Study Abroad (a national leader in study abroad and exchange programs), will take place January 8-11, 2014, in Santiago, Dominican Republic. The invitation-only summit will bring together faculty experts, thought leaders, and innovators in disciplines such as development studies, education, public health, and nursing.
The summit will examine the trend toward expanded hands-on learning in study abroad, and will develop new ways to enhance such study abroad experiences for students who seek opportunities in service learning, internships, community engagement, independent research, and field studies.
“Dr. Stroube has made exceptional contributions to study abroad programs at the University of Evansville, and by sharing his experience and vision at the CIEE Winter Faculty Summit, he will make a great impact on the study abroad opportunities available to students around the nation,” said Earl Kirk, UE director of study abroad, who nominated Stroube for the summit.
Stroube joined the University of Evansville faculty in 1998 and previously spent 12 years in management positions in the pharmaceutical industry, and eight years at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in Washington, D.C.
He has authored and co-authored more than 50 publications in peer-reviewed journals and conference proceedings. His research and teaching interests include international health care issues, health care marketing and strategy, health care regulatory issues, medical ethics, and public health.
Stroube has extensive international experience leading student groups through several health care systems. Since 2000, he has taught 17 summer classes in England, China, Hungary, Slovakia, and Austria. He has spent a total of five months in China during the past six years, including teaching five-week courses in Hangzhou, China during the summers of 2009, 2011, and 2013. His popular comparative health systems courses in England have been attended by health care professionals and students from more than 25 universities.
He holds a Bachelor of Science in chemistry from Murray State University, a Master of Business Administration in finance from the University of Maryland, and a PhD in analytical and nuclear chemistry from the University of Kentucky.
