Dr. Venicia McGhie is a Fulbright Scholar from the University of Western Cape (UWC) in Cape Town, South Africa. Her areas of specialization are Linguistics and higher education. She is an Academic Developer and works with undergraduate students in the Faculty of Economic and Management Sciences at UWC. She is currently busy conducting research on her Fulbright scholarship at the University of Missouri-St. Louis campus in St. Louis. Her research focuses on successful student learning and retention.

The Outreach Lecturing Fund (OLF) allows Fulbright Visiting Scholars who are currently in the United States to travel to other higher education institutions across the country. Each year some 800 faculty and professionals from around the world receive Fulbright Scholar grants for advanced research and university lecturing. The purpose of the OLF is to allow these scholars to share their specific research interests, speak on the history and culture of their home country, exchange ideas with U.S. students, faculty and community organizations, become better acquainted with U.S. higher education, and create linkages between their home and host institutions and CIES.

This event is free and open to the Simmons community and general public. Fulbright campus representatives and interested faculty are encouraged to attend.

Presented by the Office of the Provost, the Office of the Dean for CAS, the Masters in Public Policy Program, and the Warburg Program at Simmons College.
