COPRA is delighted to welcome Ryan Etzcorn to the team! Ryan comes to NASPAA with a dedicated interest in the ways that accreditation can be approached and enriched from the global frame. Before starting as NASPAA’s Global Accreditation Associate, Ryan lived, studied and worked in both Southeast Michigan and various regions of China for several years. He recently completed both a MPP and an MA from the University of Michigan’s Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy and its Lieberthal-Rogel Center for Chinese Studies. While at the University of Michigan, Ryan also worked with its Nonprofit and Public Management Center as a strategic analyst and served as a board member of a local nonprofit that consulted for smaller public charities. First as an intern and then after graduation, Ryan briefly worked with an immigrant economic development organization in Detroit on its initiatives to promote the state’s international students and their contributions to the local economy. Aside from his interests in international education and policy, Ryan is also deeply passionate about music and worked as a full-time, touring musician in the U.S. and Europe from 2009 to 2013.
