Former U.S. Congressman and JSU Emeritus Professor Glen Browder Received Fulbright Specialists Award

05/20/2015

Dr. Glen Browder, former U.S. Congressman and Emeritus Professor of American Democracy at Jacksonville State University, was selected for a Fulbright Specialists project in Greece at Aristotle University of Thessaloniki during late April and early May 2015.

Browder presented lectures at graduate and undergraduate levels regarding American government and U.S. politics, specifically in the areas of race, Southern politics, and the future of American democracy.

Browder is one of over 400 U.S. faculty and professionals who will travel abroad this year through the Fulbright Specialists Program. The Fulbright Specialists Program, created in 2000 to complement the traditional Fulbright Scholars Program, provides short-term academic opportunities (two to six weeks) to prominent U.S. faculty and professionals to support curricular and faculty development and institutional planning at post secondary, academic institutions around the world.

The Fulbright Program, America’s flagship international educational exchange activity, is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. Over its 60 years of existence, thousands of U.S. faculty and professionals have taught, studied or conducted research abroad, and thousands of their counterparts from other countries have engaged in similar activities in the United States. Over 285, 000 emerging leaders in their professional fields have received Fulbright awards, including individuals who later became heads of government, Nobel Prize winners, and leaders in education, business, journalism, the arts and other fields. Recipients of Fulbright Scholar awards are selected on the basis of academic or professional achievement.
