Fulton School Dean Selected for Fulbright-Nehru Seminar in IndiaSALISBURY, MD---Dr. Maarten Pereboom, dean of Salisbury University’s Charles R. and Martha N. Fulton School of Liberal Arts, has been selected for the prestigious Fulbright-Nehru International Education Administrators Seminar.
Bolstering connections abroad, Pereboom will travel to India in March with just 10 other representatives of U.S. higher education. Organized by the United States–India Educational Foundation, the program offers a first-hand look at Indian higher education. Participants will visit institutions, meet officials and learn about key programs.
“India has increasing importance, not only in education, but in our global society,” Pereboom said. “Our goal is to discover more about higher learning in that country and, hopefully, develop relationships that could turn into partnerships for SU.”
He will spend time in New Delhi and other cities during the two-week program.
SU was spotlighted by The Chronicle of Higher Education as one of the nation’s top producers of Fulbright Scholars in 2015-16. This spring, in addition to Pereboom, Dr. Andrew Sharma of Communication Arts is teaching at the Indian Institute of Mass Communications on his second Fulbright. Four SU students also are semi-finalists for various Fulbrights.
Over 20 faculty, students, alumni and others from SU have earned Fulbrights over the years. Other administrators selected for seminars include: Aaron Basko, associate vice president of enrollment management, to Japan in 2015; and Dr. Dane Foust, vice president of student affairs, to France in 2016.
The Fulbright Scholar Program is America’s flagship international exchange program and is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.
