What do Costa Rica, happiness, and the Fort Lewis College Achievement Award have in common? In his decade of work, Associate Professor of Psychology Brian Burke has shown deep dedication to the college’s staff, faculty, and students, as well as the Durango community.

Why study about the cruise industry in a land-locked classroom when you can experience it at sea on board a cruise ship?
Why try to learn Greek history and culture in Colorado when you can immerse yourself in both in Greece?

Fort Lewis College Associate Professor of Economics Robert Sonora is spending part of his summer working in Croatia thanks to the Fulbright International Exchange Program. It’s a win-win-win for the people of Croatia, Sonora, and for the future FLC students that find themselves in one of Sonora’s classes.
To earn a Fulbright scholarship is one of the highest academic honors that a faculty member or student can achieve. Only the best of the best are chosen. The experiences and knowledge gained by living and working beyond the borders of the United States through the program can be life-changing, and not just for the Fulbright participants themselves.
