DeVry University Celebrates Fulbright Faculty

Fulbright, the flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. government, works to increase mutual understanding between people of the United States and other countries. We celebrate a DeVry University professor who was honored to join this distinguished population of scholars, teachers, artists and scientists:

  • John Morello, Ph.D., senior professor of history, recently completed a Fulbright Specialist assignment in Pakistan. For two weeks, Dr. Morello worked with Quaid-I-Azam University in Islamabad to help expand its American studies program. During the visit, he also lectured on the United States Supreme Court and judicial system, mentored Ph.D. students on their dissertations, and spoke with faculty about future collaborations.
