Torrens University CEO discusses the importance of Fulbright’s approach

Torrens University President and CEO Linda Brown says Senator Fulbright’s approach was about making sure “we moulded together knowledge, and the heart, and purpose”.

The Fulbright Program is an international exchange program which aims to improve cultural diplomacy, intercultural relations, and intercultural competence between the United States and other countries around the globe.

Ms Brown told Sky News Australia she thinks "soft diplomacy" is going to be "really important" especially given the current situation in the Indo Pacific.

“It’s really going to be important … that when we’re in a classroom, even if it’s virtual, we understand each other better,” she said.

“We actually take time to understand each other’s point of view … I believe that’s what Senator Fulbright was about when he set up the scholarships years ago."
