Ms. Tonija Hope Navas has served as the Deputy Director of the Ralph J. Bunche International Affairs Center since 2015 and was recently appointed to the Directorship of the Center. Under her leadership the Bunche Center continues to expand its role as the hub for all HU global initiatives and activities. In addition to raising the percentage of students that study abroad by 30%, Ms. Navas has piloted the first HBCU Symposium on Study Abroad which was attended by 30 HBCUs here at Howard. She has also increased the number of MOUs with international universities, setting the stage for direct exchange partnerships for both students and faculty.
