Emeritus Board


Dr. Angelika Jansen-Brown

Dr. Angelika Jansen-Brown has worn many hats in her professional life – but always in relation to citizen diplomacy. Her work started 30 years ago in New York City when she helped build an institute at the German Department of New York University that had a sole purpose – bringing Americans and Germans together through learning the German language and exchanging cultural programs. In San Antonio, Angelika launched the Jansen-Perez Galleries, opening communication channels via visual art with Mexico and San Antonio. This work triggered cooperation with Monterrey and The Smithsonian Institute in Washington, D.C. Angelika is on several cultural and educational boards and has coordinated numerous artist exchange programs for the City of San Antonio. Her most recent endeavor is serving as the San Antonio-Dresden Alliance Coordinator, a partnership inaugurated in February 2009. In 2010 she also helped create an Alliance with UTSA and the Technical University in Berlin, Germany. Angelika has been a member of SACIV since 1991 and has hosted many international visitors.
