By Mary Mares-Awe—JENNIFER OXLEY, THE EXECUTIVE Director of the Fulbright Association, and Dr. Herma Williams, Member of its Board of Directors visited Chicago on May 7 and 8. They met at a cocktail reception with several members of the Chicago chapter board to exchange ideas, discuss future plans and talk about the Fulbright experiences.
This was an excellent opportunity to meet with members of the National team in a casual, after-work atmosphere in pleasant surroundings of the 676 restaurant in the heart of Chicago.
Also in attendance was Chicago board member Brey Doyle, who is leaving Chicago to begin her master’s in Public Policy at the Harvard Kennedy School in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
Nationwide there are more than 50 Fulbright Association chapters, and Chicago is one of the largest and most active ones. It’s exciting to have a strong working relationship with, and the support of, the National Office.
Ms. Oxley and Dr. Williams also visited Columbia College Chicago with our Director of Communications, Elio Leturia, who is a journalism associate professor in the Communication and Media Innovation Department of Columbia College.
