One of the United States’ most influential leaders in the international scholarly exchange arena, Maria de Los Angeles Crummett, visited Lincoln and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln last week.
Crummett is the deputy vice president of scholar exchanges for the Institute of International Education and executive director of the Council for International Exchange of Scholars (CIES).
Following the invitation of Vice Chancellor Prem Paul, the Office of Research and Economic Development welcomed Crummett to campus from March 30 to April 1. During her stay at UNL, Crummett met with Chancellor Harvey Perlman as well as other administrative and academic leaders to advise about ways the Fulbright Scholar Program can advance UNL’s global engagement agenda.
Crummett also briefed members of the faculty about Fulbright awards for scholars and well-recognized artists.
