I-House Says Goodbye to ED, Seeking New Executive Director

International House Davis is sad to say goodbye to our amazing Executive Director, Rijin Sahakian. For the past 18 months, she has developed new community and regional partnerships to further her vision of I-House as a hub for original cross-cultural programming; made adjustments and improvements to the I-House International Festival; organized the successful Ohlone November Feast, Global Family Festivals, and Youth Digital Film Workshops; restructured staffing to increase capacity; and strengthened I-House connections to Davis elected officials, Yolo County schools, UC Davis, regional nonprofits, and the wider community. She has been an excellent ambassador and spokesperson for I-House.

While she remains committed to the mission and ongoing success of I-House, she has decided to spend more time with her family. Rijin will be continuing in a part-time capacity during the search and transition to a new Executive Director who will continue to advance the mission and programs of I-House. We are currently accepting applications for the position with the goal of having a new Executive Director hired soon.
