International Programs Director and London Center Director

Adrian Craig Sherman, a psychologist, teacher, and administrator, has been named director of international programs, and longtime London Center faculty member William Sheasgreen is now director of the center.

Adrian Sherman comes to Ithaca from Tusculum College in Tennessee, where he was an associate professor and chair of psychology and dean of the international and travel programs. He has taught, at Tusculum as well as at the College of Charleston, psychology courses and interdisciplinary courses like Focus on the Environment, Our Lives in Community, and Global Issues. Among his areas of interest are gender issues and the management and reduction of stress, subjects on which he has published and presented extensively.

Sherman spent a year teaching English and other subjects in the People’s Republic of China during the 1980s and was awarded five faculty fellowships by the Mellon Foundation to attend the Salzburg Seminars in Austria from 1997 to 1999. He has traveled extensively throughout Asia, Europe, and the Americas.

"Dr. Sherman’s appointment," says Tanya Saunders, assistant provost for special programs, "heralds the next phase in the College’s development of its international dimension, more fully engaging the faculty and broadening the curriculum."

Sherman holds a bachelor’s degree in biological sciences and chemistry from California State University, Chico; a master’s in experimental psychology from Appalachian State University in North Carolina; and a doctorate in educational and counseling psychology from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.

William Sheasgreen has taught diverse history subjects at the Ithaca College London Center since 1975. He has also served as an adviser to freshmen at the center. Sheasgreen taught and lectured at Woolwich College and Marymount and Huron Universities in London, at the Illinois Consortium for International Studies, and at the State University of New York at Binghamton. He has taught courses for various American colleges through the Centre for Academic Programmes Abroad. Since 1997 Sheasgreen had served as interim director of the program.

Sheasgreen holds a bachelor’s degree in history from Loyola College of the University of Montreal and a master’s in Oriental studies from Cambridge University.

Sheasgreen, says Saunders, "has been a dedicated member of the London Center faculty for nearly 24 years. It is a pleasure to have him take on the leadership of the center. I am confident that he will not only ensure the vitality of our London Center program but greatly assist our effort to enhance faculty involvement."
