He advises and supports students who study in these places, and works with various departments on campus to manage the financial and academic aspects of the programs in these countries.

After receiving his BA from Penn State, Chris was a Peace Corps Volunteer in Sierra Leone and has been involved in Returned Peace Corps Volunteer (RPCV) activities since then.
