More than 2,000 students have had the opportunity to study abroad because of the American College of Norway which expands and opens up the mind to the world intellectually and socially. I am delighted to support ACN which transforms student lives.

Giving my time, energy, and resources to the American College of Norway has always been a natural choice for me. We live in a time when global relationships and international issues are at the heart of every act and decision a person can make. American College of Norway fosters international collaboration of the best kind — collaboration based on meaningful friendships, shared experiences, and strong academics. For me, to change the world, I know I need to invest in the people who make that happen — and the people at American College of Norway are at the top of that list.

My semester at ACN, teaching literature in the fall of 2001, was a transformative and liberating experience, and among the most memorable of my thirty year teaching career. For my daughters who accompanied me, and for myself, indelible memories and significant friendships solidified our transatlantic educational journey. The opportunity to become a global citizen, and enjoy a study-abroad experience, is one I wish for everyone.

It is truly gratifying to see the transformation students experience upon completing a term at ACN — they become more confident, they gain insight into themselves, they become global citizens. ACN provided me with one of the most meaningful personal and professional experiences of my life. I want to help pass that on. That is why I give.
