Northridge Faculty Members Join Fulbright Program

Moore Will Teach, Conduct Research in Indonesia; Lew Will Work with Libraries in China

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 (right), who received a Fulbright scholarship for spring 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(right) 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, and 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 librarians.

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.

Lew expressed her appreciation of the support she received from Fulbright campus representative Justine Su, international programs coordinator.
