Beginning his career as a teacher at the high school and college levels, Paul A. Ramsey went on to a 30-year career with Educational Testing Service (ETS). After early work in teacher licensing and national testing programs, Mr. Ramsey became Senior Vice Present of the Global Division. In that role, in addition to overseeing national testing programs in English language proficiency, he worked on educational reform and assessment in the international arena, most notably in Qatar.
Since retiring from ETS, Mr. Ramsey has served as a consultant in international education and assessment, and in diversity. His main work now is overseeing two charitable organizations he co-founded: Friends of Puerto Aventuras (FOPA) and The India Group (TIG). FOPA provides English education and post-secondary scholarships for students in a Mayan community in Mexico. TIG offers scholarships to low-caste children and basic healthcare to their families in three communities in India.
Mr. Ramsey received a bachelor’s degree from the University of Notre Dame, and master’s and doctorate degrees from the University of Michigan—all in English Literature and Language. Today he continues to travel extensively, enjoying the friendships and professional acquaintances he has made over the years and miles.
