Adjunct Professor Patricia Brock has recently returned from Capitol Hill, where she spoke with Congressional members of the House and Senate about the Fulbright Educational Ambassadorship Program. Brock, along with Fulbright leaders from across the globe, flooded the nation’s capital this month to urge lawmakers to continue funding Fulbright and the opportunities this program provides.
“I am so proud to have gone to Washington to advocate for this fine organization and to highlight Pace University. My hope is that my fellow colleagues and students can apply for a future Fulbright one day.”
Brock was in D.C. taking part in Fulbright Advocacy Day, where she spoke to Congress about the importance of funding this 71-year-old international exchange program which "advances peaceful societies and careers." She was joined by Fulbright representatives from eight different countries including Austria, Germany, England, Hungary, Pakistan, Brazil, Nepal and the U.S.
“It was an amazing experience and I’m so proud to have been a part of it.”
Brock is a Fulbright scholar and before coming to Pace, taught at the now American University in Central Asia in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan.
The Fulbright Program is the flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. government and is designed to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries.
