Dexter Burns

Dexter Burns had never left the United States before coming to the University of Illinois Springfield. However, that changed when the Global Studies major discovered the Study Abroad Program. Burns recently spent a semester at the University of Colima in Mexico. During his visit, he actively fought the stereotype that Mexico was unsafe for foreign visitors. He even did interviews with a local newspaper and television station. On campus, Burns is an international student organization ambassador and lives in the International House.

Leadership is lived at UIS. Every day.
