UNIS Welcomes Jane Camblin, Executive Director
- UNIS is proud to announce the appointment of Jane Camblin as its new
Executive Director. Ms. Camblin comes to us from the French-American
International School of San Francisco where she was Head of School. She has
been a teacher, administrator and consultant in public and private schools in
England, France, Australia and the United States. She is a recipient of a Sarah
D. Barder Outstanding Educator Fellowship Award from Johns Hopkins University and a Klingenstein Fellowship at Columbia University.
Ms. Camblin is a three-term elected Board Member of the Council of International Schools (CIS), a membership organization representing international schools around the world, and was the
founding Chair of the Council of International Schools in the Americas (CIStA). She currently serves as Chair of the Foundation Board of Bristol University and until January 2012 held an elected seat on the International Baccalaureate Heads Council, which provides advice on strategic policy issues. In 2004, Ms. Camblin was named Chevalier des Palmes Académiques by the French Ministry of Education for her services to French culture and education.
Ms. Camblin has “long admired UNIS for its noble purpose, and for the tangible, living, breathing, authentic, international diversity clearly in its very DNA, palpable as soon as one walks through its doors. I share its reverence for academic rigor, global awareness, and international curriculum; its celebration of linguistic excellence and diversity in all its many forms; and the goal of creating and nurturing a truly warm, supportive, collegial learning community which provides a dynamic but safe and inclusive place for all its members.”
Ms. Camblin has met many UNIS alumni throughout her years in International Education. She has been impressed by the caliber of students UNIS produces and the love that alumni express for their school. The dedication to the ideals and spirit of the UN Charter and the obvious desire to make a difference in the world comes across clearly in her conversations with alumni. Ms. Camblin is looking forward to meeting many more UNIS alumni and is “committed to
working together to build on the strengths of the past, but with our eyes firmly on the future.”
