Quinn named director of Dean Rusk Center

Alan Flurry

Congratulations to our UGA colleague and Franklin alumna Sarah Quinn who has been appointed the director of the Dean Rusk International Law Center, a nucleus for global research, education and service for the University of Georgia School of Law since 1977. Quinn, who has directed the center on an interim basis since June 2023, previously served as associate director for global practice preparation and managed the school's Global Governance Summer School (a four-decades-old summer study abroad offering), Global Externships, the Graduate Certificate in International Law and other academic and research initiatives. 

Quinn graduated from the University of Georgia in 2011 with a double major in art history and painting. After graduating, she moved to Morocco and worked as a Youth Development volunteer with the U.S. Peace Corps. Her primary areas of focus were capacity building in youth populations, community development and girls' empowerment. In 2015, Quinn completed her Master in Education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. Her research focused on the role of the arts in language acquisition, and she presented this research at the 2015 HGSE Student Research Conference. In 2022, Quinn completed her Master of International Policy degree at UGA's School of Public and International Affairs. Her capstone research project is entitled "Norm-alizing Ecocide: What the Campaign to Make Ecocide the Fifth International Crime Can Learn From Norms Literature."

Congratulations to a wonderfully accomplished colleague whose career and educational credentials exemplify the power of the arts and humanities.
