York Professor Gets Fulbright

For the second time in three years, a York faculty member has been granted a Fulbright award. Dr. Selena T. Rodgers, an assistant professor of Social Work in York’s School of Health and Behavioral Sciences, is the second professor to earn Fulbright designation in that school, following in the footsteps of Teacher Education professor, Dr. Linda Gerena, who was granted the Fulbright Fellowship in 2010.

Dr. Rodgers, whose home unit is the Department of Social Sciences, has been designated a Fulbright Specialist Grantee of the US Department of State’s Bureau of Education and Cultural Affairs and the Council for International Exchange of Scholars. As a Fulbright Specialist she will prepare several manuscripts for peer-review and conduct presentations at professional conferences based on her Fulbright experience.

A Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW-R) with a specialization in social work administration, Dr. Rodgers has been among York’s busiest professors with her research on posttraumatic growth in diverse populations. In addition to presentations nationally, her research has taken her to Brazil, Cuba, and South Korea. Her expertise in posttraumatic growth will become part of curricular development for academic institutions in Moldova, where she will fulfill part of her Fulbright services.

Please join me in congratulating Dr. Selena T. Rodgers on this outstanding professional achievement!
