—Kevin J Worthen (“A Vibrant and Determined Community of Learners and Lifters,” 24 Aug 2015)
International Vice President
The International Vice President’s Office was established in 2001 to coordinate and communicate Brigham Young University’s international activities, facilitate and leverage efficient use of university resources, and strategically focus attention on priorities of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We partner with faculty, colleges, the Church, and others.
The International Vice President’s Office is about making the motto, “The World Is Our Campus” a continuing and evident part of university life. In 1962, when President Ernest L. Wilkinson posted the sign at our campus’s front gate, he provided a visual marker on what was already long underway, namely, the development of a unique, prophetically led university that would progress from a good regional college to an outstanding international university.
The International Vice President’s office has responsibility for the following:
- International Hosting and Ambassadorial Visits Program
- Division of Continuing Education
- International Diplomatic Scholarships
- Performing Arts Management
- Special International Projects
- David M. Kennedy Center for International Studies
- International Study Programs
- Global Security, Health, and Safety—including International Travel
In addition to serving as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Philippines, she has worked with the Church’s Humanitarian Services Committee in Africa and Eastern Europe. As a nursing professor, Rogers was asked to serve as a consultant for numerous international programs, including training and development projects funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).
Rogers also served as dean of BYU’s College of Nursing for six years. Her research has focused on primary health care programs.
She received a PhD from the University of California–San Francisco, specializing in international, cross-cultural nursing and holds degrees from the University of Arizona and Brigham Young University.
