Campus: CSU Northridge -- July 16, 2004
Northridge Faculty Members Join Ranks of Fulbright Scholars
Cal State Northridge management professor Richard Moore and librarian Angela
Lew have been tapped for service in the prestigious Fulbright Scholar Program.
Established in 1946 under legislation introduced by the late U.S. Sen. J. William
Fulbright, the State Department program aims to build mutual understanding between
the people of the United States and other countries.
Moore, who received a Fulbright scholarship for the spring of 2005, will spend
six months in Indonesia at the Bandung Institute of Technology in West Java.
Assigned to the College of Management at the institute--the oldest university in
Indonesia--Moore will devote half of his time to teaching and half to research.
"I will teach human resource management and organizational behavior at the graduate
level," Moore said, "and provide advice about MBA curriculum to the college." He
also will conduct a study of the human resource management practices of
multinational corporations in Indonesia.
During the last ten years, Moore has worked on various consulting projects in
Indonesia, including assignments for the World Bank and the Indonesian government
on micro-enterprise development, industrial skills training and non-formal
education program development.
Angela Lew has been selected as the Fulbright senior specialist in library science
for the next five years. Scholars on the senior specialist roster of the Fulbright
program are offered short-term grants from two to six weeks each, to conduct teacher
training, develop or assess curricula or educational materials abroad.
Once the plan is completed for Lew's first project, she will collaborate with the
library director at the Ningbo Institute of Technology, Zhejiang University
(NIT/AU), located in the coastal city of Hangzhou, China. During the three-week
project, Lew will provide on-site assessment and troubleshooting for the operations
and services of eight college libraries in the Ningbo College Park for Science
and Technology. The project also will include training workshops for college
Lew also expects to work at a later date with former CSUN visiting scholar Honghui
Liu, director of the Guangzhou Children's Library. They plan to initiate an
information technology service providing children from low-income families in and
around Guangzhou with free Internet access and other digital library resources.
"Overjoyed" at the prospect of joining the Fulbright program, Lew expressed her
appreciation of the support she received from Fulbright campus representative
Justine Su, coordinator of international programs. "I want to see more CSUN
colleagues apply for the Fulbright Senior Specialist program," Lew said.
