Phil Conroy

My name is Philip Conroy and I have been an EAIE member for 20 years. I am a founding member of the EAIE’s Alumni Relations Expert Community and a senior trainer for the EAIE. I am completing my second term as Chair of the Alumni Relations Steering group. I manage my own consulting firm, which specialises in strategic initiatives for higher education institutions in North America and Europe. I am a former President of Vermont Technical College, a public polytechnic institution in the north-east United States. I have served in a variety of faculty and administrative roles in enrolment management, marketing and advancement. I led teams to develop internationalisation programmes at three of the colleges and universities I served. I would bring a unique perspective to the General Council as a former president, Expert Community Chair, trainer and international graduate student – I was an international student in Finland for part of my doctoral studies. I am passionate about international education and the impact it has on students’ lives. It would be an honour to continue to serve the EAIE as a member of the General Council.
