The U.S. Department of Education (ED) welcomes its new Deputy Assistant Secretary for International and Foreign Language Education (IFLE), Mohamed Abdel-Kader. As Deputy Assistant Secretary of IFLE, Mohamed Abdel-Kader will "have responsibility for encouraging and promoting the study of foreign languages and the study of the cultures of other countries at the elementary, secondary, and postsecondary levels in the United States; and coordinate with related international and foreign language education programs of other Federal agencies," as established in the 2008 Higher Education Opportunity Act. He will be leading the work of IFLE in administering the domestic programs authorized under Title VI of the Higher Education Act and those overseas programs under the Mutual Educational and Cultural Exchange (Fulbright-Hays) Act that ED administers.

Prior to joining ED, Mohamed Abdel-Kader served as the Director of Development for the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University and also managed the university’s advancement strategy in the Middle East region, where he focused on major gifts and strategic engagement.
