Mercer's Brazilian Fulbright
Meet Mercer's Brazilian Fulbright, Natalia Sterci, who is teaching Portuguese language and Brazilian culture this spring.
Mercer also received a Fulbright-Hays Project grant in the summer of 2013. Led by the Project Director, Dr. Zipangani M. Vokhiwa, a native Malawian and an Associate Professor of Science at Mercer University, College of Continuing and Professional Studies, the project whose theme was The Interaction of Environment and Culture in Malawi, was among other goals aimed to enable the selected participants collect data for use in integrating environmental awareness and cultural competency into their Area Studies curricula in their classrooms and to create an ongoing, online resource for collaborative opportunities for American and Malawian educators to engage in cross-cultural understandings.
