In the latest expansion of his responsibilities with the School of Public Policy, Roger Stough has taken on the directorship of the International Commerce and Policy (ICP) program. Frank Fukuyama, former ICP director, has gone back to teaching full time.

Stough’s goal is to strengthen the ICP program and expand its enrollment before a permanent director is hired next year. A new admissions staff member has been hired to boost student recruitment efforts, and plans also are being made to expand ICP’s study abroad programs to India, in addition to programs already underway in China and England.

In addition to his roles as ICP director and NOVA Professor of Public Policy, Stough serves the School of Public Policy as associate dean for academic affairs, director of the Mason Enterprise Center, and director of the National ITS Implementation Research Center, a project of the Center for Transportation Policy and Logistics. Among the projects occupying his time is the development of a new master’s program in public policy, which launches next year.

Stough’s main office has relocated to the Arlington Campus, but he divides his time between Arlington and the Mason Enterprise Center on University Drive in Fairfax, as well as maintaining an office in the Finley Building on the Fairfax Campus.
