CANTON — Jeffery Frank, associate professor and coordinator of undergraduate programs in education, has been selected as a Fulbright Specialist.Frank

Frank will be listed on the Fulbright roster for the next three years. In that time, he may be selected to pursue a project anywhere in the world that will benefit an international partner.

"I am especially interested in projects that infuse philosophical thinking into teacher preparation, projects that expand educational studies in schools and universities and projects related to liberal education," Frank said. "I'm also excited about the prospect of bringing my research background and work in educational studies at St. Lawrence to an international audience and collaborating with new partners."

The Fulbright Specialist Program, part of the larger Fulbright Program, was established in 2001 by the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, to pair highly qualified U.S. academics and professionals with host institutions abroad to share their expertise, strengthen institutional linkages, hone their skills, gain international experience, and learn about other cultures while building capacity at their overseas host institutions.

Specialists, who represent a wide range of professional and academic disciplines, are competitively selected to join the Fulbright Specialist Roster based on their knowledge, skill sets, and ability to make a significant contribution to projects overseas.
