Georgia Tech has named Adam Stulberg the new chair of the Sam Nunn School of International Affairs.
The school, located within the Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts, is replacing Joe Bankoff, a former intellectual property attorney who led the Woodruff Arts Center before coming to Tech, who is stepping down after seven years in as chair.
Dr. Stulberg is a 20-year veteran of the Nunn school, serving as co-director of its Center for International Strategy, Technology, and Policy and associate director of Georgia Tech’s Strategic Energy Institute, one of the university’s seven interdisciplinary research centers. He was also associate chair for the Nunn school and has been heavily involved in planning and fundraising.
He has taught undergraduate and graduate courses on international security, Russia/Eurasian politics and security affairs, nuclear (non)proliferation, and energy and international security. His research has focused on the intersection between energy resources, markets and institutions. He has been praised for taking a practical approach to scholarship, blending theory with real-world applications.
“Dr. Stulberg has consistently shown himself to be a forward thinking leader, astute administrator, willing collaborator, and successful fundraiser who as adept at building programs and establishing advisory boards as he is mentoring students and faculty,” said Jacqueline Royster, dean of the Ivan Allen College.
The selection was made by a search committee composed mainly of professors in various disciplines within the Ivan Allen College.
