OISS Staff Changes

May 11, 2022

As OISS Executive Director, Ann Kuhlman, is set to retire on June 30, 2022, we are excited to share information about the new OISS leadership.

Ozan Say will become the next OISS Director effective July 1st. Ozan began his OISS career in 2015 as an international student and scholar adviser, working with students in Yale College. As a former international PhD student, Ozan easily relates to navigating the complexities of U.S. immigration and moving to a new country and educational system. He is thrilled to take on this new position to continue the work of ensuring a smooth and successful experience for all internationals on Yale’s campus.

Mihwa Lee has filled the position of OISS Associate Director. Mihwa, who like Ozan came to the U.S. as an international student, joined OISS in 2015 and has over 23 years of experience in international education. She primarily works with our international scholar community and is excited to continue this work in her new capacity.

With these changes in leadership, OISS will add new advisers over the next several months to our team. As we go through this transition, we will communicate with everyone about changes in responsibilities or points of contacts for departments, students, and scholars.

Please join us in congratulating both Ozan and Mihwa on their well-deserved promotions!
