The 2016-2017 Fulbright Lunch & Learn seminar series continues with "A Transformative Year in South America: From UI to Venezuela" featuring guest speaker John W. Fuller, Ph.D., professor in the Department of Urban, Graduate College, and Regional Planning and Department of Economics, Henry B. Tippie College of Business. This event will take place Friday, February 3, from 12:30-1:20 p.m. in 1117 University Capitol Centre.

In the mid-1980s, Professor Fuller was a Fulbright scholar in Venezuela, where he structured a masters program in economics for Universidad de los Andes. While there, he also consulted with local transportation officials to explore the creation of an urban transit system. Little did he know at the time that this cross-cultural experience would fundamentally change his worldview and impact the rest of his life.

This event is free and open to the public - bring a brown bag lunch and a friend and come prepared to learn!

This series is co-sponsored by the Iowa Chapter of the Fulbright Association and UI International Programs.
