Morgan Morris Inabinet is responsible for risk assessment, emergency management, and regulatory compliance for UofSC’s international activities. In her role, she designs protocols and policies to support students, staff, and faculty traveling abroad for study, research, and other university-related purposes.  She also monitors global events that may impact UofSC's international operations.

Prior to entering the field of international education, Morgan worked in international law enforcement within the Office of International Affairs at the U.S. Department of Justice in Washington, DC. As an undergraduate, she spent a summer studying Mandarin in Suzhou, China; a semester traveling throughout Europe completing coursework related to European politics; and a semester completing an internship at the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh, Scotland.

In her spare time, Morgan enjoys taking day trips around the Carolinas and spending time with her family, especially her two dogs (no offense, human family).
