Why Foreign Scholars Come to Catholic University
Every year, foreign scholars choose to come to Catholic University because of its unique, world-class experts and resources. CUA’s own faculty members, in turn, go abroad as visiting scholars and lecturers to pursue their own research needs and to experience other cultures. Here is a look at this year’s Fulbright and other visiting scholars who are making the most of their time at CUA and abroad. See story.
