IEWRichard Slimbach is Professor of Global Studies and Coordinator of the Global Studies Program at Azusa Pacific University. He founded Azusa's Los Angeles Term, Global Learning Term, and M.A. in Transformational Urban Leadership (MATUL) programs, the latter focused exclusively on the planet’s one billion slum dwellers. Slimbach holds a Ph.D. in comparative and international education from UCLA and is the author of Becoming World Wise (Stylus, 2010). His passion is to cultivate within the next generation a sense of responsibility for the fate of the poor and the planet. In his spare time, Slimbach enjoys converting castaway bicycles into fixed-gear commuters. He lives with Leslie, partner of 30 years, and their two children (Justus and Destinae) in Monrovia, California.
