Professor Claudia G. Green, Ph.D., RD, a professor of Management and director of Hospitality and Tourism Management at the university’s Lubin School of Business, has received a Fulbright Specialist Program award, Pace University today announced. It marks the second time Green has been a recipient of a Fulbright award.

The Fulbright Specialist Program sends U.S. faculty and professionals to serve as expert consultants on curriculum, faculty development, institutional planning, and related subjects at academic institutions abroad for two to six weeks. Fulbright Specialists are a diverse group of highly experienced, well-established faculty members, and professionals who represent a wide variety of academic disciplines and professions.

“I feel very honored to be recognized yet again for my contribution to furthering understanding and collaboration with international colleagues in Brazil, Cambodia, and now in Spain,” said Green. “It reaffirms the importance of international relations and sharing of knowledge.”

Green will complete her project over the course of 30 days at the Universidad de Seville in Spain, where she will be working with colleagues to conduct a project on the economic, social, and environmental importance of agritourism to Andalusia, which is in the southern region Spain.

The project will include identifying agritourism businesses, the development of an interactive map of agritourism businesses, and a needs assessment with the agritourism entrepreneurs to identify their needs in terms of education and training of professionals in the sector to help get them to get better results and to improve the rural economic development.

“We are delighted to hear of this well-deserved honor for Professor Green,” said Katherine Richardson, Ph.D., associate dean of Graduate Programs Professor and Management and Management Science Department at the Lubin School of Business. “She has been the Director of the Hospitality and Tourism Management Program at Pace for over 20 years, and during this time has worked on multiple international research projects focused on sustainable tourism and social entrepreneurship. This is a great example of how our Lubin faculty engages in educational activities that make a positive impact on society, not just within our local community but global communities as well. Professor Green will be a wonderful ambassador for the Lubin School of Business and Pace University.”

Seven years ago, Green was a Fulbright Specialist in the Kingdom of Cambodia, where she collaborated with tourism professionals, anthropologists, archeologists, and tour guides of the Temples of Angkor Wat. Their goal was to examine the problem of over-tourism and strategies for managing it.

Green has taught at Pace for over 25 years and is a resident of the Soho neighborhood of Manhattan.
