Marywood Professor Named Fulbright Scholar
Marywood University President, Sister Anne Munley, IHM, recently announced that Dr. Bradley Janey, Associate Professor of Psychology/Counseling, has been named a 2010 Fulbright Scholar. Recipients of Fulbright awards are selected on the basis of academic or professional achievement, as well as demonstrated leadership potential in their fields.
Through the Fulbright award, Dr. Janey will live at Tomsk State University in Tomsk, Russia. "I will collaborate with local students and faculty to develop a research tool that will allow the study of the male gender role according to cultural norms in Russia." Dr. Janey said. While exploring the experience of being a male in post-Soviet society, his research will extend to male issues investigated by Western researchers such as substance abuse, psychological distress, potential for violence, and many forms of violence against women, including attitudes accepting of rape. He will complete his Fulbright appointment during the fall semester.
Tatiana Vaulina, a faculty member at Tomsk State University, encouraged Dr. Janey to apply while visiting Marywood University last year.

With this goal as a starting point, the Fulbright Program has provided almost 300,000 participants-chosen for their academic merit and leadership potential - with the opportunity to study, teach and conduct research, exchange ideas and contribute to finding solutions to shared international concerns. http://www.cies.org/
