*Please note that this event will take place the evening of Thursday, October 21, for those residing in the Eastern Time zone (ET).

To commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Fulbright Program, the Fulbright Commission in Australia will host an online discussion panel featuring four pre-eminent Fulbright Scholars, and moderated by Emmy award-winning journalist and Fulbright Board member, Sara James. The discussion will run from 9:00-10:00am (AEST) with additional time for audience Q&A.

“Old Programs, New Challenges: In a complex and changing world, what is the role of educational exchange?” will generate discussion on some of the most critical issues facing democracy and international education over the next 75 years:

  • Regional Security
  • Propaganda and Disinformation
  • Partisanship and Division
  • Equity of Access in Higher Education
  • Social Impact Causes
  • Educational Exchange in a Post-COVID world
