Wheelock College announces Dr. Alfredo Varela of Norton, as the Director of ONCAMPUS Boston, a newly established collaborative partnership with the Cambridge Education Group (CEG) based in Cambridge, England.
The partnership aligns with Wheelock's mission to improve the lives of children and families around the world and its goals to grow its international student body and expand the College’s engagement in global issues.
In the first year of the ONCAMPUS Boston program, students from around the world are enrolled at Wheelock, offering academic learning and a safe and secure college environment in which to acclimate to college life. Upon completion of the program, students will have the opportunity to progress into the second year of degree courses at Wheelock or any of the other ONCAMPUS Boston partner institutions.
“The partnership between the College and Cambridge Education Group further extends the opportunity and access to a high quality higher education experience in which we both so strongly believe. We are excited to have Dr. Varela’s leadership and expertise in this unique effort,” said Dr. Adrian K. Haugabrook, Wheelock’s Vice President for Enrollment Management and Chief Diversity Officer. ”
