Rev. Daniel DeLucca, Ph.D.; Dr. Gerald O’Sullivan, Vice President for Academic Affairs; and Board of Trustees member John Ford.
Eileen Flanagan, professor of pastoral studies at Neumann University, was recently selected for a Fulbright Specialists project in Ireland at All Hallows College. She will travel to Dublin for six weeks and work as a consultant for its master of applied spirituality program. ““All Hallows is committed to integrating spirituality and health care. I will be collaborating with College and local medical personnel concerning their biosocial models and well-being networks to address holistic health care opportunities,” said Flanagan.
Flanagan is one of more than 400 U.S. faculty and professionals who will travel abroad this year through the Fulbright Specialists Program. The Program, created in 2000 to complement the traditional Fulbright Scholar Program, provides short-term academic opportunities (two to six weeks) to prominent U.S. faculty and professionals to support curricular and faculty development and institutional planning at post secondary, academic institutions around the world.
The Fulbright Program, America’s flagship international educational exchange activity, is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. Over its 60 years of existence, thousands of U.S. faculty and professionals have taught, studied or conducted research abroad, and thousands of their counterparts from other countries have engaged in similar activities in the United States. More than 285,000 emerging leaders in their professional fields have received Fulbright awards, including individuals who later became heads of government, Nobel Prize winners, and leaders in education, business, journalism, the arts and other fields.
