The Fulbright Scholar-in-Residence (S-I-R) Program assists U.S. higher education institutions in expanding programs of academic exchange, by supporting non-U.S. scholars through grants for teaching at institutions that might not have a strong international component and/or serve minority audiences. Both the U.S. institution and the scholar grantee benefit from this experience. This academic year 2019-2020, St. Philip's College is hosting Dr. Derick Wilson from Ulster University and the Corrymeela Peace & Reconciliation Centre in Ballycastle, Northern Ireland. We look forward to a year of living out the Fulbright mission to "educate, exchange, engage, and lead."

18 September 2019 - Breakfast with the Mayor
Mayor Ron Nirenberg took to the Pearl Stable stage Wednesday morning, Sept. 18, for the Rivard Report‘s annual “Conversation With the Mayor,” and he found it hard not to notice a few former occupants of the office seated prominently at the front of the audience. Former Mayors Henry Cisneros, Nelson Wolff, and Phil Hardberger will be there to listen to Nirenberg and to pay respect to former Mayor Lila Cockrell, who died Aug. 29. She was a pioneer in public service whose lasting legacy is only now gaining a full appreciation in this city. The breakfast program opened with a minute of silence accompanied by a slide show to honor her memory. Cisneros, of course, delivered an eloquent eulogy at Cockrell’s Sept. 5 funeral at Laurel Heights Methodist Church.
