Levy Earns Fulbright to Lecture in Mexico

Daniel C. Levy of the Department of Educational Administration and Policy Studies has received a Fulbright Grant for the 1995-96 academic year. Levy's grant involves lecturing at the Center for Economic Research and Teaching in Mexico City, Mexico, from September 1995 to February 1996.

Levy, a political scientist, has concentrated his work on the politics of higher education, private and public education, comparative education, the nonprofit sector, and Latin American American and development politics in general.

He has published five books, including Higher Education and the State in Latin America, University and Government in Mexico, and (with G. Szekely) Mexico: Paradoxes of Stability and Change, and approximately 100 articles. He has also lectured on five continents.

Approximately 2,000 U.S. grantees will travel abroad this year under Fulbright grants, which are administered by the United State Information Agency and awarded by the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board on the basis of a national competition. All Fulbright applications undergo rigorous peer review, a process that is conducted by the Council for International Exchange of Scholars.

The Fulbright Program, established in 1946 under Congressional legislation introduced by Senator J. William Fulbright of Arkansas, is designed "to increase mutual understanding between the people of the U.S. and the people of other countries" by creating a commitment to international educational exchange.

In addition, Janet Gerba, who received her Ph.D. in English from the University in 1993 and was an adjunct faculty member last year, received a Fulbright to lecture from October 1995 to June 1996 at Safarik University in Presov, Slovak Republic.
