Misty Clugh lives and works with one motto in mind, from Ralph Waldo Emerson: "Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm." She has enthusiasm for people (especially her family), their stories, and global experiences.
She hears many stories, from the students and faculty who need her assistance as they plan their international experiences abroad or to Purdue from other countries. In fact, without her assistance as the Office of Globalization assistant, it’s possible their trips may not even happen. Misty makes sure legal documents are gathered, paperwork is completed and plans are made.
Misty believes intercultural development is key to succeeding in the global marketplace of the 21st century. She is a Qualified Administrator of the IDI (Intercultural Development Inventory), a Qualified Facilitator of the GCC (Global Competency Certificate), and an Administrator for the BEVI (Beliefs, Events,and Values Inventory).
A graduate of Indiana University with a degree in studio art, Misty completed her own study abroad in Venice and traveled to China with a non-profit group while she was a student.
Her previous work experiences include stints as executive assistant for Liberty Dialysis, district director for the Muscular Dystrophy Association and field manager for Information Resources.
She spends much of her free time with her two 12-year-old dogs, Sienna and Gracie, and with her human family, too. Misty is past president of the Alpha Delta Chapter and current Alpha Province President of Sigma Phi Gamma International Sorority and an ordained ruling elder at Bethany Presbyterian Church in Lafayette.
Misty is proud to be chosen as the Outstanding ISS Liaison in 2019 as well as receiving the Polytechnic's 2019 Equity, Inclusion, and Advocacy Staff Award.
