Meet the Staff: Julie Matsubara

More than 100 staff members work in the Division of the Humanities. We'll introduce you to our staff in this continuing series.

Julie Matsubara
Director, English Language Institute

What do you like most about your job?
The best part is interacting with highly motivated individuals across all units of the university, as the English Language Institute (ELI) provides academic, professional, and intercultural programming to any UChicago individual for whom English is an additional language. Also, on a personal level, the job challenges me to utilize all of the knowledge and experience I had gained through my Linguistics education and teaching/administrative positions.

What was the last good book you read?
Galápagos by Kurt Vonnegut

You might work with me if you...
… require English language support for students, postdocs, staff, faculty, and partners.

Since we’re close to Valentine’s Day, do you have a favorite romantic comedy?
Amélie
