David Puente, Ph.D.

Regional Vice President, Academic Affairs & Global Mobility in Austin, United States

David joined the ISA team in 2003 after completing graduate study in English and Comparative Literature at the University of California, Irvine. Based in Granada, Spain, he has been involved in several company initiatives, such as international student mobility, that have taken him around Europe and the Middle East to dozens of fairs and conferences. In between his other travels he supports Academic Affairs by leading ISA Group Site Visits in Europe and Morocco. David's role in Academic Affairs has recently expanded to include responsibility for implementing the ISA Discovery Model throughout his region. With over a decade of experience leading student groups abroad, teaching in the classroom, and experiencing cross-cultural learning first hand as an ex-pat in Spain, David is uniquely suited to assist resident staff around the world in the development and implementing clear and realistic learning objectives for our students' co-curricular experiential learning during ISA cultural activities and excursions.
