Visiting International Scholars and Dignitaries
UNE’s Office of International Affairs (IFCA) and UNE Schools have invited international professors and professionals from El Salvador, Brazil, Egypt, Canada, China, Macedonia, South Africa, Ecuador and other nations around the world for both long and short term programs through the Fulbright Scholar in Residence (SIR) program, the Fulbright Occasional Lecturers Program (OLP), and the Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program, a Fulbright international mid-career professional development program.

Such Visiting International Scholars and Fellows programs have enriched the academic life at UNE and have proven to be a very successful way to internationalize the university’s curriculum and co-curricular activities while increasing the university community’s exposure to international topics and information about the history, languages and cultures of the visitors’ home countries. Additionally, the visiting scholars and professionals program has opened new doors of opportunity for international collaboration between UNE and the visitors’ home institutions abroad.

UNE has also hosted a number of international ambassadors and foreign dignitaries, who have played an important role in promoting global awareness and international collaboration with the university. Most recently, UNE hosted the Ambassadors of Kosovo (2011) and Peru (2010).
