Program on Fulbright Scholars marks International Education Week

Harriet Mayor Fulbright, the “Unofficial Ambassador” of the worldwide Fulbright Program, will participate in events Monday celebrating Miami's first International Education Week, Nov. 15-19.

A Fulbright Scholar Workshop will begin at 3:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 15, in the MacMillan Hall Great Room. The program will include a briefing on grants for faculty and professionals and a panel of Miami Fulbright Scholars. A reception and a presentation on “Fulbright: His Legacy and Its Relevance Today” will follow at 5 p.m.

Harriet Mayor Fulbright has spent the majority of her life in the fields of education and the arts. From 1997 until 2000 she was the executive director of the President's Committee on the Arts and the Humanities, whose mission is to encourage public/private sector partnerships that enhance cultural life in America. Before that, she served as the “Unofficial Ambassador” for the 50th anniversary of the Fulbright Program and in that capacity traveled to 16 countries on all continents and all over the United States.

Ms. Fulbright shared with her late husband, Sen. J. William Fulbright, a dedication to the search for peaceful solutions to conflicts throughout the world. During the past 50 years, the Fulbright Program has funded teaching, research and study programs abroad for more than 250,000 students, faculty and professionals.

All faculty and professionals interested in the workshop and reception/presentation are welcome to participate.
