Deborah Casey, Ph.D., president of Wor-Wic Community College, has been selected as a 2024- 2025 Fulbright U.S. Scholar in the United States- France International Education Administrators program. 


Fulbright International Education Administrators (IEA) Awards are fully funded opportunities for U.S. higher education administrators to participate in intensive two-week seminars abroad to learn about other countries’ higher education systems. 

“I am looking forward to representing Wor-Wic overseas and deepening my understanding of the different cultures’ educational practices that could benefit our community,” Casey said. “I hope this experience will open doors to collaboration and exchange possibilities with colleagues and students throughout the world. Wor-Wic is committed to global education for our students and community and the Fulbright Award will lay the groundwork for global partnerships between Wor-Wic and international higher education institutions.” 

Fulbright Scholar Awards are prestigious and competitive fellowships that provide unique opportunities for scholars to teach and conduct research abroad. Fulbright scholars also play a critical role in U.S. public diplomacy, establishing long-term relationships between people and nations. The IEA seminar will take place in October.
