Study abroad opportunities are a hallmark of a Richmond education — and the dean of international education is definitely one to thank for the success of our programs. Her hard work has even earned a prestigious Fulbright to travel to Japan in June.

Martha Merritt will visit universities, colleges, and cultural organizations in Tokyo, Kyoto, and Hiroshima with her Fulbright International Education Administrators Seminar Award. Her work will develop cross-continental connections between UR and our partners in Japan.

“I am gratified to have received a Fulbright award in keeping with UR’s growing desire and need to engage with Asia,” Merritt said. “This is a timely and much appreciated opportunity to visit and, with the advice of UR’s experts on the country, think about ways to engage with this important country.”

Congratulations, Dean Merritt!
