Fulbright Ambassador at the University of Bucharest

roxana olteanOn the 1st of October, the Fulbright Commission, with its mission and values, was present at the Opening Ceremony of the Faculty of Foreign Languages and Literatures through the message delivered by Dr. Roxana Oltean, Fulbright Ambassador at the University of Bucharest. During the ceremony, moderated by the Dean of the Faculty, Professor dr. Liviu Franga, and held in the presence of the Rector of the University of Bucharest, Professor dr. Mircea Dumitru, of Vice-Rectors and of the Vice-Deans of the Faculty, dr. Oltean addressed faculty and students, dwelling on the history, projects and achievements of the Fulbright Commission on the world stage in general and in Romania in particular, and especially invoking the Commission’s role in advancing the cause of mutual international understanding, tolerance and support between the US and the partner countries. In this sense, a key aspect of the intervention was the manner in which the Fulbright Commission is committed to building bridges between academic and general communities, thus also contributing to the development of the host countries. Showing that the Commission’s influence extends far beyond the academic programs and exchanges, dr. Oltean emphasized, in essence, the wider significance of the spirit of what Senator Fulbright called “international goodwill” at the heart of the Commission’s projects and activities.

Summer institutes“As part of the Summer Institute on Environmental Stewardship, twenty European students from 13 different countries were hosted at Kansas State University in Manhattan, Kansas, to learn about matters concerning the environment, such as sustainability, resources management, energy production, soil and water quality among many other things.

The program consisted of lectures and presentations on a variety of topics that have a significant environmental impact and of field trips, such as tours of the Wolf Creek Nuclear Power Plant, the Philips Company producing LED and fluorescent lights and the Johnson County Wastewater Treatment Plant.

In all our visits we received first-hand knowledge and understanding of the place and the mechanisms that drive the energy production, as well as the challenges to become more environmentally friendly.
