College Recognized as Top Producer of Faculty Fulbright Scholars

In 2017, no master’s level institution had more faculty named Fulbright scholars than Ithaca College. The college had four faculty awarded Fulbrights: Jennifer Germann, associate professor of art history; Lindsay Gilmour, assistant professor of theatre arts; Michael Smith, associate professor of history and environmental studies and sciences; and Paul Wilson, associate professor of art history.

Hugh Egan, professor in the Department of English and two-time Fulbright lecturer, said that the improvement from the previous year—when the college ranked third for faculty awards—shows how the faculty is breaking new ground. “It’s great to see that IC has moved up in the rankings, and it’s further evidence that our faculty…are thinking globally and are willing to take intellectual risks,” he said.
