The Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL) and the Office for Global Studies and Programs hosted a reception for NOVA Fulbright Scholars on April 3. The event, in honor of all Fulbright Scholars, was attended by faculty and staff from several NOVA campuses. The Fulbright Scholars at the event included Dr. Amy Gilley (AN), Communication Studies and Theater Arts, who recently returned from Bosnia and Herzegovina; Dr. Phillip Imel (AN), Accounting, who returned last spring from Russia; and Dr. Min Ji, a Fulbright Scholar in Residence from Sichuan Normal University in Chengdu, China.
The excitement about the Fulbright Scholars program was apparent. The scholars all reported that the scholarship was not only personally beneficial to them, but also makes them NOVA ambassadors to their countries.
For those interested in becoming a Fulbright Scholar, please contact Stacy Bustillos in the office of Global Studies and Programs at firstname.lastname@example.org. Each of the scholars would be happy to hear from you as well.
Please watch for further receptions. CETL will sponsor another event in the fall, tentatively planned to be held on the Loudoun Campus.
