This week we offer an in-depth conversation with a several recent alums of the Fulbright U.S. Student Program, who share their perspectives on living and teaching or researching abroad. Our panel of guests will be:
John C. Calhoun, - Lauren Reynolds
Cliff Missen, - Sarita Patnaik 

What is the value of doing research abroad or teaching abroad – for the student, for the communities? What are the expectations that people have of Americans or American researchers, and how are those expectation imposed upon everyday interactions? What are the greatest challenges of integrating into a new culture, learning a language, and trying to answer specific research questions at the same time? Is this the manifestation of an outdated concept of aid or a strong fellowship of scholars, teachers, students and professionals who have an opportunity to change the world for the better?
