The Fulbright Enrichment Seminar in Salt Lake City as seen by Romanian Student Researcher Andrei Crăciun

“As a Fulbright Student Researcher, I had the opportunity to attend last month an Enrichment Seminar titled 'Technology, Entrepreneurship and Startups', which was held in Salt Lake City, Utah. During the three-day seminar, I engaged with other Fulbright Fellows and with representatives from the U.S. Department of State, non-profit sector leaders, academics, and community representatives.

Pertaining to my doctoral research, I study the Romanian ecosystem of artificial intelligence researchers and related business. The seminar provided me the unique occasion to gain direct knowledge about one of the fastest growing cities in the U.S., which is also home to a vibrant entrepreneurial ecosystem in the field of technology. Through keynote presentations from business and community leaders, panel discussions involving successful tech entrepreneurs, on-site visits, and small group interactions, I deepened my understanding on how one of the top tech ecosystems is functioning.”

News from Fulbright Researcher Angela Andrei

“In the week of 18th-22nd February, 2019, I had the great opportunity to visit some schools in Wisconsin to learn about policies and practices related to the evaluation of career guidance programs, the topic I am researching at Boston University, the Wheelock College of Education and Human Development.

Through observation of activities, tour of facilities, artifact and document analysis, discussions with school counsellors, teachers, school principals, academic learning coordinators, district ACP coordinators, and superintendents, I enriched my vision of how a career program called Academic and Career Planning (ACP) is implemented and evaluated at middle school and high school level in the state of Wisconsin. The most important topics discussed with the American decision-makers and practitioners were: how ACP is integrated in the school program, who is responsible for the activities, how staff is trained, what kind of professional resources are used, how schools cooperate with family, community and businesses, how activities are evaluated, how beneficiaries are involved in the process of evaluation, how the participation in ACP influences students, what are strengths and weaknesses of the ACP program.

This study visit was also a great occasion to share ideas and present the Romanian school education, guidance and counseling system to the American colleagues.”

Lecture at the American Studies Department in Bucharest

Since the Revolution in 1989, not only the Romanian border but also its archives have opened. In his presentation at an American Studies class at the University of Bucharest, Trent Sanders explains how contemporary Romanian, Hungarian, and American artists and intellectuals are curating a history of Communist political prisoners in Romania. Trent is a U.S. Fulbright Researcher at Babeș-Bolyai University, Cluj-Napoca.

Metropolitan Chrysostomos

It is with deepest sorrow that we learn about the repose of Metropolitan Chrysostomos of Etna Emeritus, Executive Director of the Romanian-U.S. Fulbright Commission in 2002-2003 and a Fulbright Scholar in Iasi and Bucharest in 2000-2001.

He will be always remembered by the Fulbright community in Romania for his dedication to Fulbright values, for his wise, graceful, passionate and constant presence and deed.
