Fulbright HSI Symposium

The Fulbright HSI Symposium (April 27, 3:00-5:00 PM ET) will discuss Fulbright opportunities and resources for Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSIs), the benefits of a Fulbright experience, and the role that the Fulbright Program plays in supporting HSI campus internationalization, global awareness, and engagement. It will highlight best practices and resources for engaging with the Fulbright Program and celebrate HSI campuses that have been successful in promoting Fulbright opportunities to their campus communities and hosting Visiting Scholars, Scholars-in-Residence and FLTAs to help internationalize their campuses.

This public workshop is open to all HSI faculty, staff, and stakeholders, as well as individuals from other institutions who are interested in attending. The symposium will spotlight the unique role HSI students, faculty, and administrators play in representing American higher education and the American experience both in our country and around the world.

The program will include speakers from four HSIs -- University of Houston, Montclair State University, California State University, Chico, and Florida International University -- as well as the State Department's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs and the Institute of International Education, and video remarks on the Fulbright HSI Leaders Initiative by CUNY Chancellor Félix V. Matos Rodríguez.  Register

Background on Fulbright HSI Leaders Initiative
The inaugural Fulbright HSI Leaders were announced by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the U.S. Department of State (ECA) during the international plenary session at the annual Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities (HACU) conference in October 2021. The 35 colleges and universities that received this designation include three Associate and Baccalaureate Institutions, 16 Masters Institutions, and 16 Doctoral Institutions. This initiative is part of the U.S. State Department's long-standing commitment to build diversity and inclusion within the Fulbright Program and within all the Bureau's international exchange programs. ECA has established this designation to acknowledge the strong partnerships between the Fulbright Program and HSIs, and to encourage the entire network of HSIs to increase their Fulbright engagement. Having strong HSI participation in the U.S. government's flagship international exchange program is critical to fully representing the diversity of the United States through the Program.
