Peter H. Hansen, Professor of Humanities and Arts and Director of International and Global Studies, has been named a Fulbright Scholar to France to participate in the 2017 U.S.- France International Education Administrators Program. International Education Administrators (IEA) seminars help U.S. international education professionals and senior higher education officials create empowering connections with the societal, cultural and higher education systems of other countries. Grantees have the opportunity to learn about the host country’s education system as well as establish networks of U.S. and international colleagues over the course of an intensive two week grant duration. Grantees return with enhanced ability to serve and encourage international students and prospective study-abroad students. Hansen’s participation in the Fulbright IEA program will create the connections for WPI to develop new strategic partnerships in Europe.
