UNC Asheville has sent scholars – both students and instructors – to Germany, Norway, Ghana and other countries to pursue research and instruction in their fields through the Fulbright Program, which sponsors student and scholar exchanges with more than 155 countries.
“I’ve read our student applications…. And I was blown away,” Chancellor Mary Grant says in the accompanying video.
“It’s one more way that we’re making an impact,” Grant says. “The students are doing fantastic work in the classroom with our faculty. They get inspired. They get a taste of it. They do a research project and they say, ‘I want to know more about this, and I know I can make a difference.’ And it’s a recognition of the scholarship here.
“It might be something in the water – could be something in the beautiful mountain air. I know it’s something in the classroom,” she says.
