UA professor participates in Fulbright Program anniversary celebration


Dr. Sucharita Ghosh, professor of economics in the College of Business Administration, was invited to the 70th Anniversary of the Fulbright Program in Italy on Dec. 11 organized by the Embassy of Italy in Washington, D.C., and the United States Department of State.

The program was founded by Sen. James William Fulbright in 1946. Italy was one of the first countries to participate, joining the program in 1948.
