ARLINGTON, Va. — ISEP President John Lucas, Ph.D. announced Ms. Terhi Mölsä, Chief Executive Officer at the Fulbright Finland Foundation, joined the ISEP Board of Directors on July 1.

Upon accepting the invitation to join the board, Mölsä commented, “As a former ISEP student, as a former ISEP Coordinator and as a life-long champion for international education, it is a privilege for me to join the ISEP Board.”

“Terhi Mölsä’s experience as a non-profit executive, as well as a consultant, trainer and curriculum developer on strategic leadership and management in international education, will inform Board discussion on these topics,” said John Lucas. “In addition, her perspective as someone who has benefitted from an ISEP exchange will be most helpful as we continue to build our alumni and outreach efforts.”

With nearly 30 years of professional experience in higher education internationalization, Mölsä served in various capacities at the University of Tampere and Finnish Ministry of Education agencies prior to joining Fulbright Finland where she became the Executive Director in 2002 and the CEO of the new Fulbright Finland Foundation in 2016. She is the Past Chair of the European Fulbright Directors and serves on Boards and in leadership positions both in Finland and internationally.

Their commitment to ISEP’s mission of facilitating student mobility for academic and cross-cultural learning is unparalleled. Board members have experience living and working in Asia, Australia, Europe and North and South America, reflecting the global diversity of the ISEP community.
