Cindy Elliott (Fort Hays State University, USA)

Cindy Elliott is Assistant Provost for Strategic Partnerships and Dean of Distance Learning at Fort Hays State University (FHSU) in Hays, Kansas. She focuses on policy making, program and partnership development, and maintenance of university, community college, corporate, military and international partnerships. Through these efforts and the hard work of others, the number of enrollments for FHSU has nearly tripled over the past decade. One of her significant achievements has been the establishment of the first jointly-run bachelor’s degree program in mainland China in the year 2000. Today, FHSU has 3,600 Chinese students at two partner universities in China offering five different bachelor's programs and is expanding with additional partners for study abroad. FHSU was the first American university to be approved by the Minister of Education of the People’s Republic of China to offer a dual bachelor's degree. Cindy is active in expanding similar partnership relationships in other parts of the world.

Cindy has her educational background with Southern Illinois University for her bachelor’s degree; Florida International University for her master’s degree; and Harvard University for Management of Lifelong Education program. Prior to this role, Cindy was Dean of FHSU’s Virtual College; Director of Distance Learning at Florida International University, Miami, Florida; and Manager of Product Development and Distribution at Miami-Dade Community College, Miami, Florida.
