“I am delighted to be joining the community of Fulbright University Vietnam. The opportunity to build a university from the ground up is unique. But the fact is that Fulbright already has an impressive foundation.
My new colleagues, the co-design cohort of students, and administrative teams have laid strong foundations of transdisciplinary rigor and engagement, and the innovations in liberal arts education that are happening here are exciting. I’ve already begun talking with students, colleagues, and administrators about the work we might do together, and I’m eager to get started in earnest. It’s a privilege to be joining Fulbright for its inaugural year.”
