In addition to 28 new students, the MSc Global Change Ecology program welcomed a new coordinator this winter semester!
Sylvia Sprödhuber has joined Stephanie Thomas in GCE Coordination as a successor to former coordinator Anja Jaeschke. Sylvia additionally works as a coordinator of the Bayreuth-Melbourne Colloid/Polymer Network in the International Office at the University of Bayreuth. Previously she was already employed as the Chair of Marketing and member of the management team of the Bayreuth Economic Congress at the University of Bayreuth.
In addition to her career experience, Sylvia brings with her to the GCE department interest in the varying perspectives of different disciplines which are captured in the GCE program. She describes herself as “a great friend of multidiscplinarity” and finds this aspect one of the most appealing attributes of the elite international GCE curriculum.
Sylvia looks forward to becoming familiar with the diverse range of tasks involved in her position and especially connecting with the students which, admittedly, is not easy under the current Covid-19 restrictions. She is enthusiastic about her core duties involving working with and supporting students and the GCE family is excited to welcome her.
