VCU administrator receives Fulbright to South Korea
Friday, June 5, 2015
Leslie A. Bozeman, Ph.D., the associate director of global engagement at VCU Globe in Virginia Commonwealth University’s Global Education Office, will participate in the Fulbright International Education Administrators program in South Korea this summer.
Fulbright’s IEA program helps international education professionals and senior higher education officials from the United States create connections with the societal, cultural and higher education systems of other countries.
Bozeman manages the curriculum and global engagement initiatives and teaches the global education and global engagement seminars for VCU Globe, a global education living-learning program.
Bozeman and grantees from seven other American institutions of higher education will spend two weeks in South Korea from June 14–27. The participants will attend meetings with representatives from Korean universities, private-sector agencies and organizations and selected government agencies; visit university international offices; and respond to questions about U.S. higher education. The grantees will visit Andong, Busan, Daejeon, Seoul and the Korean Demilitarized Zone.
“Having focused on international higher education for my doctoral program, this Fulbright award helps me to enhance that area of expertise, share information about U.S. higher education and cultivate relationships with Korean education professionals,” Bozeman said. “I’m particularly interested in Korea because of the positive impact Korean exchange students to VCU have had on the VCU Globe program and students.”
The Fulbright International Education Administrators Award is a program of the United States Department of State Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.
