Chris Gray

Hello! My name is Chris Gray, and I’m originally from northern Virginia. I earned a BA in Political Science from Rice in 2012, and I’m currently pursuing an MA in Higher, Adult, and Lifelong Education via Michigan State University, where my main academic interests lie in the relationship among campus internationalization, higher education access and opportunity, and preparing college students for active citizenship. Previously, I served in Rice’s Office of Study Abroad as a study abroad advisor and with the Japan Exchange and Teaching (JET) Program as both an English teacher and national program coordinator. I strive to foster an advising partnership with students which gives them the support and confidence to reflect on their goals and discover strategies to meet them. Beyond my work and studies, I enjoy reading, running, cooking, and exploring my adopted home of Houston. I look forward to working with you!
