The following university has expressed interest in hosting a Fulbright Scholar:
Faculté d'Ethonologie of the State University of Haiti
The School of Ethnology of the State University of Haiti in Port-au-Prince (Faculté d'Ethnologie, l'Université d'Etat d'Haiti, FE/UEH) seeks a Fulbright scholar for its Department of Anthropology and Sociology and cross-disciplinary initiatives. The Fulbright scholar would advise on new curriculum, lead faculty workshops and assist the university in organizing academic conferences. Preference is for applicants who can demonstrate engaged research, public scholarship, teaching scholarly production and critical thinking to second language learners of dominant languages, and the implementation of marginalized languages (e.g. Haitian Creole) as scholarly languages of communication in the African diaspora.
FACULTÉ DES SCIENCES RÉHABILITATION D’ LÉOGÂNE
Occupational and Physical Therapists from many countries have visited Haiti for decades, bringing the vision and skills that are needed to give people with disabilities new possibilities for their lives. However, there are limits to what any foreign therapist can accomplish during a short visit. Professional education in Haiti for Haitian OTs and PTs has been a distant dream, but that dream is now a reality! Haitians are now able to receive a four-year professional therapy education without having to leave the country. The Episcopal University of Haiti (UNEPH) has enrolled Occupational and Physical Therapy students in a newly-formed Rehabilitation Department (FSRL), beginning in October of 2015. UNEPH is not a U.S. university: it is a Haitian university, investing in its work of building capacity for and by Haitians.
The non-profit privately funded institution of higher learning and research is free of political and religious affiliations. Its Latin motto "Hominis beneficio cognoscere et agere" can be translated "Knowledge and action at the service of mankind". The university comprises six major areas of study: Agriculture and Environment, Management and Economics, Engineering and Architecture, Law and Political Science, Education, and Health Sciences, offering bachelor's and master's degrees. In particular, it promotes entrepreneurship and economic development. On 17 November 2015, the university's rector, Jacky Lumarque, spoke achievements over the past 25 years. He mentioned in particular how the Centre for Entrepreneurship and Innovation had succeeded in creating 200 enterprises and had trained over 600 business consultants and entrepreneurs. Founded in 2011, the centre had initially been supported by the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund.
