Gene, the founder of the CEIC, wears many hats at Earlham. He is the executive director of our center, a Global Management professor, a mentor, and does work in recruitment and fundraising. Not to mention his role as tour guide of his office (if you’re on campus, stop by his office in LBC!). Being an Earlham alumnus, Gene was also active on campus during his time as a student. He was a singer in Earlham’s Gospel Revs, a Black Leadership Action Committee member, and a tennis player, among many other things. After graduating in 1973 with a degree in sociology, Gene went on to have an accomplished career in the business field and earned an MBA from the Colgate Darden Graduate School of Business Administration at the University of Virginia. Having done everything from being a director of international sales at World Kitchen (ask him how many languages he knows), to founding his own company, to being a director of corporate relations at a cyber security lab at Carnegie Mellon, Gene eventually made his way back to Earlham in 2014 and has led our center ever since.

Career Community Coach: Health & Medicine
Hello again – my job is to help students who are interested in careers in health & medicine identify potential careers and opportunities. I have worked at Earlham since July 2017, first as a Career Coach and now as the Associate Director of the Center for Global Health. I also serve on the Health Careers Advisory Committee (HCAC) here at Earlham and am a member of the National Association of Advisors for the Health Professions (NAAHP).
In addition to running some of the center’s key programming, I also advise our student clubs/organizations: Health Club, MAPS, and HOSA, and supervise the Pre-Health Peer Mentors — who are all wonderful and happy to meet with you!
When I am not working in the CGH, you can find me in the classroom teaching a LIFT course for our first-generation students or assisting with the McNair Program.
Chances are if you have met a fluffy, high-energy, cocker spaniel taking his student friends for walks around campus . . . it’s Earl. In addition to my dog baby, we recently added a human to the mix. I can’t wait for you to meet Ingrid!
