I am excited
to have recently received approval to be a Fulbright Specialist. This
prestigious awarded is granted by the
U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) and
World Learning! The Fulbright Program is a United States Cultural Exchange Program with the
goal of improving intercultural relations, cultural diplomacy, and
intercultural competence between the people of the United States and other
countries through the exchange of persons, knowledge, and skills.
The Fulbright Specialist Program is a unique opportunity for U.S.
academics and established professionals to engage in two- to six-week,
project-based exchanges at host institutions across the globe. This is a
prestigious award, and I feel blessed to be chosen to represent the United
Fulbright Scholar, I feel honored to have the opportunity to provide global
impact on academic transformation for a host country! This Fulbright collaboration aligns well with
our UAGC mission and provides potential directions for future global collaborations
focus with the host country will provide opportunities for global
collaborations between UAGC students and students from the host country. Structured with intent, my Fulbright program
will support retention of students in their programs, enhance global leadership skills, and provide global
experiences and collaborations toward career preparation.
