Faculty Fellow

Our connection with faculty members is a vital part of our approach to international education. We started our International Education Faculty Fellow program as a way to deepen our connection to Richmond faculty, especially those who are champions of internationalization on campus.

Faculty Fellows use their expertise to advise on office initiatives, build relationships across campus, and strengthen existing programming to benefit student scholarship. Anthony Russell, our first faculty fellow, recruited faculty members to become involved with Fulbright advising and interview panels, prior to the hand-off to the Office of Grants and Scholars.

Patricia Herrera, a participant on the 2016 Faculty Seminar to Cuba, serves as the 2018–19 academic year fellow and will be involved with strengthening university ties to partners and institutions in Cuba.
