Alexander Archuleta serves as the director of international programs at The Fund for American Studies (TFAS), overseeing the TFAS academic programs in South America, Europe and Asia, as well as managing outreach with educational partners and alumni. Prior to joining TFAS, he served as a research associate of U.S. foreign policy at the Council on Foreign Relations, where he supported the projects of multiple senior fellows.
Alexander grew up in Seattle, Washington, where his close contact with immigrant communities, particularly volunteering with resettled Bhutanese refugees, sparked an interest in studying abroad in college. While attending Whitworth University in Spokane, Washington, he studied in Costa Rica, Hong Kong and Washington, D.C. Through these experiences, he developed an interest in international relations and a greater desire to foster cross-cultural dialogue through relationships. After graduating with his bachelor’s degree in international studies and political science, Alexander moved back to D.C., which is now his second Washington home.
An outdoor enthusiast, Alexander loves to explore the greater D.C. area on foot or by bike. He and his wife enjoy cooking new plant-based recipes for friends and family, running around with their daughter or kicking back with a sitcom.
