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.

Shahan Mufti, associate professor of journalism, is now serving his second term as academic year fellow in partnership with International Education. Shahan has pioneered UR's connections to the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting in Washington, DC and actively supports campus internationalization through these and other professional relationships.
