St. Edward's University Assistant Professor Craig Campbell chosen for Fulbright program
During his five-week trip to the Arab country, Campbell will attend the "Contemporary Arab Culture and Society" seminar, visit key archaeological and historical sites in Jordan, and stay with a Jordanian family to experience the culture firsthand.
Campbell, who teaches public safety management and criminal justice, hopes to create a new appreciation for this area of the world by sharing his experiences with his students in the classroom.
"Part of public safety management is dealing with terrorism, and unfortunately some now associate terrorism with Arab countries," says Campbell. "I think there's another side to the story about people in the Middle East and I'm looking forward to learning more about the culture in that part of the world."
Campbell is set to leave on June 30.
