Edward Muldoon earned his Bachelor’s degree in History from Ohio University in Athens, Ohio, and lived and worked in Norfolk, England following the completion of his degree. Early and adventurous international living, travel, and language practice helped form the backbone for his devout beliefs in the power of international education, cooperation, and diversity as instruments of change and cooperation.

Edward's background is in international student, faculty, and refugee services, and data integrity and compliance. Prior to James Madison University he worked in Columbus, Ohio, as a Job Developer for Community Refugee and Immigration Services - a refugee resettlement organization. Prior to that he worked with international students and staff (and their data) at Ohio University in Athens, Ohio, for ten years in various roles including International Student Advisor.

At JMU, Edward works primarily with faculty and staff members in employment-based immigration support. He feels honored to be a part of the enrichment and internationalization of the campus community through his role with the Center for Global Engagement. His ambitions are to be a precise conduit between international students, faculty, and staff and the federal government, to be a good steward for the United States of America, and to contribute positively to JMU’s current position and future growth as a leader in international education.

Edward and his wife are fortunate to be reunited with a large extended family living in Harrisonburg, and when they are not working in the community they will be found in the garden, near a river, or deep in the forest.
