Louise Baldwin is the Assistant Director of the International Center. She first joined the International Center as the Peace Corps Coordinator, then became Program Coordinator in 1991 and Assistant Director in 2000. Louise has a long-standing interest in other countries and other cultures.

As an undergraduate student at Bryn Mawr College, she majored in Anthropology, and also has a master's degree in Anthropology from the University of Michigan.
