Charles Wallace Named Fulbright Alumni Ambassador

image45069-persAssociate Professor Charles Wallace (CS) has been chosen as a Fulbright Alumni Ambassador. Fulbright Alumni Ambassadors are selected competitively for two-year terms. During that time, they present information on their Fulbright experience at campus workshops, academic conferences and other venues.

The goal of the alumni ambassadors is to help increase the diversity of the individuals and institutions of higher education that participate in the Fulbright Scholar Program, which sends more than 800 faculty and professionals to teach or conduct research in 125 countries around the world.

The Fulbright programs are supported by the US Department of State. They are named for the late Sen. J. William Fulbright, who served as long-standing chair of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and established a program of international exchanges after World War II.

Wallace worked as a Fulbright Scholar at Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile in Santiago, Chile, during 2010.
