Ming-Hui Li, Ed.D., Associate Professor, Counselor Education, The School of Education, was recently selected by the US Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs as a Fulbright US Scholar for 2024–25 in Taiwan. He will conduct research there for eight months.

“Dr. Li is one of our incredibly accomplished faculty members who continue to demonstrate why this is the leading school of education in the New York City metropolitan area,” said James D. Wolfinger, Ph.D., Dean, The School of Education. “A Fulbright is one of the most impressive awards a scholar can earn, and for Dr. Li, it is well-deserved. His talents in the classroom will be missed this coming year, but we are thrilled that he has this remarkable opportunity.”

Fulbright Scholar awards are prestigious and competitive fellowships that provide unique opportunities for scholars to teach and conduct research abroad. Fulbright scholars also play a critical role in US public diplomacy, establishing long-term relationships between people and nations.

Alumni of the Fulbright program include 62 Nobel Laureates, 89 Pulitzer Prize winners, 80 MacArthur Fellows, and thousands of leaders and world-renowned experts in academia and many other fields across the private, public, and nonprofit sectors.

“The Counselor Education department is incredibly proud of Dr. Li for this achievement,” said Heather C. Robertson, Ph.D., Professor and Chair of Counselor Education in The School of Education. “Not only is Dr. Li beloved by our students for his teaching, but he is also a top researcher and scholar in our department.”

She continued, “This Fulbright award recognizes his skills and talents, allowing him to expand his research in diverse global communities. His research on resilience among diverse adolescent populations supports our department’s mission to foster an expectation of cultural awareness, social justice, and responsibility among counselors.”
