1 New Fulbright Partner HAAGA-HELIA University of Applied Sciences Strengths of Finland Attract U.S. Student Grantees Celebrating the 60th Anniversary of the Fulbright Agreement Alumni Relations and Institutional Giving Alumni Fundraising for Fulbright Finland vol. 22 nro 1 (55) kevät/spring 2012 fulbright center news

2 From the Executive Director Exhilarating, transformative, life-changing. These are words often used by Fulbright Center grantees in describing their experience. Every year, the Center supports over 80 Finnish and American students, scholars, teachers and professionals in their search for knowledge, new inventions, and solutions for local and global challenges. The Finnish- American Fulbright program develops future leaders with international skills and cross-cultural capacity. Over 3500 Finns and 1500 Americans have received a grant since the program s inception in While support from both the Finnish and U.S. governments secures the basis of the operation, the growth of the program relies on private and cooperative support from individuals and institutions in both countries. In these times of uncertain economic outlook, the alumni of the Finnish-American Fulbright Program on both sides of the Atlantic have stepped forward to help support the program. Friends of Fulbright Finland, the Center s alumni network in the United States, recently launched a fund raising campaign in the U.S. to endow a new grant in the Finnish-American program (p. 9). The FoFF Grant will assist an American alumnus of the program to return to Finland to renew and invigorate academic and professional connections made earlier. The campaign goal is USD 25,000, and I am very pleased to announce that just within the first month of the campaign more than a quarter of this sum had already been reached. Respectively, the ASLA-Fulbright Alumni Association in Finland recently made a decision to launch a campaign with the goal of being able to fully sponsor one Fulbright grant every year in the Finnish-American Program in the future. The Alumni Association further decided to found the ASLA-Fulbright Alumni Ambassadorial Award to highlight the importance of the role of the alumni, and the role of the grantees as future alumni, and as ambassadors (p. 13). I want to sincerely thank our alumni, both in the U.S. and in Finland, for their initiative and commitment that exemplify the true alumni spirit. I am also very pleased to announce our newest institutional partner: HAAGA-HELIA University of Applied Sciences (p ). The Fulbright Center and HAAGA-HELIA have signed an agreement creating an entirely new award for American scholars (p. 4). HAAGA-HELIA serves in a pioneering role as the first university of applied sciences (UAS) in Finland that has a formal agreement with the Fulbright Center. All these initiatives honor the ongoing 60th Anniversary Year of the Signing of the Fulbright Agreement between Finland and the United States (p ). As the invited columnist of this anniversary issue (p. 2), we are much honored to have the Minister for Foreign Affairs of Finland, Dr. Erkki Tuomioja. Terhi Mölsä Friendship And Learning Through Six Decades Academic exchange programs have been an integral part of the relations between Finland and the United States since the early years. The renowned Fulbright Program is a prime example of this. July 2012 marks the 60th anniversary of the establishing of the Fulbright exchange program between Finland and the United States. I have also a personal connection to the event; the agreement was signed on behalf of the Finnish government by then Foreign Minister Sakari Tuomioja. The Fulbright Program established in was an achievement of the U.S. Senator J. William Fulbright. This internationally-minded politician could have influenced American history even more profoundly had he been chosen as the Secretary of State in 1960 as President Kennedy then wanted. Nevertheless, this remarkable statesman has left a substantial legacy, which has brought countries together in the areas of education, research and sharing knowledge. In the beginning, Finland was more on the receiving side of Finnish-American relations; the United States supported Finland after World War I by granting loans to rebuild the country, and through the academic exchange programs. Today Finland is a Nordic welfare state and part of the European Union. The United States and the European Union are strategic partners, and for Finland, the United States is an important partner in various sectors. Actually, nowadays the most important cooperation sectors between our two countries are technology and education. Finland is no more only on the receiving end. Quite the opposite, today our small country is known for its innovations, high-technology, and most importantly, high-quality educational system. Especially, the success of the Finnish basic education system in the international PISA tests has gained an unprecedented interest in the United States. This phenomenon has even been termed: Finlandophilia. Although this might be a slight exaggeration, the truth is that American policy makers and experts from the educational sector are now looking ever more closely at this outstanding Finnish accomplishment. Finland s educational system is part of the Nordic model, where the cornerstone is free education for all citizens from the first grade through university. This way Nordic countries guarantee equal access to education for all regardless of their social status and economic situation. U.S. experts are also interested in how to create more quality education for all learners. The other topic that has gained interest is the professionalism of Finnish teachers. In these areas we can significantly increase our cooperation, as these are strengths of the Finnish educational system. The basic values behind our educational system, equality and democracy, are fundamental principles in all policy making in Finland. This can be seen especially in Finland s development policies, for example in Afghanistan. We see equal access to education as a basis for sustainable and democratic development. Educating girls and women, and thus empowering them, is one of our priorities and an integral part of the development policies. We hope that this hype on the Finnish basic education system will lead to a new, intensified cooperation in higher education between Finland and the United States. We also want to develop our education system further, towards one that is truly international and equal. The educational sector is now, and will continue to be, one of the key elements in the relationship between Finland and the United States.

In this issue of the Fulbright Center News the focus is on HAAGA-HELIA University of Applied Sciences, read more on pages Application information Information on HAAGA-HELIA Director for International Affairs Ms. Sirpa Holmström The Lois Roth Endowment Award to Robinson and Tasse 4 Philip Robinson and Amanda Tasse, Fulbright US student grantees, received this year s Lois Roth Endowment Awards. The Lois Roth Endowment Selection Committee concluded that the applicant pool was extremely strong this year making the selection decision very hard to make. Philip Robinson is a doctoral student at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute pursuing a part of his dissertation research in Finland on the role of architecture in acoustic perception. As a Fulbright grantee, at the Aalto University School of Science and Technology, Philip has been measuring auditoriums and concert halls as well as conducting listening tests and writing journal articles. Philip was granted the Lois Roth Award for a measurement campaign to survey several of Finland s notable churches. The measurements will be used to conduct listening experiments on speech intelligibility. The measurement campaign and experiments will further knowledge of the auditory system and thus advance architectural design. Learning what factors affect acoustic communication will allow designers to address these issues and provide more effective spaces, whether for churches, classrooms, or auditoriums. Amanda Tasse from the University of Southern California is currently conducting her dissertation research in Neurocinematics Film Studies at the Aalto University. Amanda has been working closely with an interdisciplinary AivoAALTO team. In her research, Amanda investigates potential uses of animation in neurocinematic research, participates in neuroimaging experiments (fmri), develops a method of annotation and analysis for use of animated film clips in neurocinematics research as well as develops a database of animated imagery for use in future research. With the help of the Lois Roth Award, Amanda is able to prolong her cooperation with the AivoAALTO team over the summer. The special award will also allow Amanda to visit and learn about the animation program at the Turku University of Applied Sciences Art Academy, the media studies department at the University of Lapland, and the Midnight Sun Film Festival in Lapland. The Lois Roth Endowment supports exchanges across national and cultural boundaries to enhance international communication and understanding. The Roth Endowment was set up in memory of Lois Wersba Roth who made an international career in various positions, e.g. in the American Scandinavian Foundation. The Endowment commemorates the life of Lois Roth by supporting selected people who work in the places and fields of enquiry that she loved. The Fulbright Center has cooperated with the Lois Roth Endowment for many years and US Fulbright students in Finland focusing in arts, humanities and social sciences have been granted annually the Roth Endowment Award.

The same applies to institutional giving. However, both areas are now receiving increased attention at all Finnish higher education institutions. It was for this very reason that a delegation of 13 Finnish higher education experts decided to visit the United States on a week-long study tour in March The tour enabled professionals in the field of development and alumni relations to compare their approaches, evaluate both established and emerging traditions, and benchmark best practices from selected U.S. public and private institutions and from each other. This was the fifth study tour organized by the Fulbright Center in Helsinki for Finnish higher education experts, and this time it took place in Washington, D.C., Maryland, and Virginia. - This was a change making experience, says Sakari Jussi-Pekka, Head of External Relations from the University of Oulu. After working over 20 years at the University this gave me a fresh start to my new role in the field, he says. Pia Dolivo, the Head of Community Relations Office at the University of Helsinki, and Campaign Manager of the university s current fundraising campaign Helsinki Insight 2012, agrees with Mr. Jussi-Pekka. - The study tour was excellent. It deepened my skills and understanding of advancement and gave me insight and ideas to further develop alumni relations and fundraising at my university. The full study tour program and background materials as well as the group s report are all available on the Fulbright Center website at /en/ internationalization-services/study-tours. The Fulbright Center wishes to sincerely thank the Institute of International Education (IIE) for their cooperation in the organization of the tour, the excellent invited seminar speakers from several specialist organizations and institutions in the field of advancement in the United States, and our insightful and welcoming colleagues at all four host campuses: University of Maryland, University of Richmond, Virginia Commonwealth University, and the College of William and Mary. 7

8 Spending a Fulbright Year in Finland Strengths of Finland Attract US Student Grantees Finland attracts US Fulbright students to explore and study topics and fields in which Finland ranks high in global comparisons. Grantee research and study topics frequently reflect the strengths and areas of specialization in Finland. A wish to join a world renowned Finnish research group is often an important reason for a US student to apply for a Fulbright grant to Finland. For example, a Finnish research group focused on the relatively new and innovative field of Neurocinematics or a group researching evolution by studying the development of mammalian teeth have been reasons for US students to select Finland as the destination. Finland s high success in the Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) comparisons and the country s low corruption rate have also inspired US students to come to Finland to find out how the country manages to perform in the comparisons with such high results. Each year famous Finnish architects as well as Finland s strength in Arctic Studies and a suitable geographical location Apply Now! The next Fulbright US Student competition round opens in May 2012 (for the academic year ). The online application period ends in October Application information and instructions are available at www. fulbrightonline.org and www. fulbright.fi.

Finland s internationally known expertise in research on acoustics is another example of a field which has attracted US doctoral students to pursue part of their dissertation research in Finland. Each year the Fulbright US student program brings approximately ten US students to Finland for one academic year. Since they can freely select their Finnish host institution according to their own academic plans and preferences, grantees are scattered across the country. The US student program offers a multitude of possibilities for academic development in Finland. A student on a Fulbright can enroll in a full master s or doctoral degree program in a Finnish university. There 8

9 Alumni Fundraising for Fulbright Finland Friends of Fulbright Finland launches a fund raising campaign to endow a new grant for American alumni of the Finnish Fulbright Program Fulbright students visiting Finnish national composer Jean Sibelius monument. The Finnish Fulbright Center organizes enrichment activities and support services for Fulbright grantees throughout the year. Events range from orientations to seminars, receptions, and visits to various interesting locations such as the Finnish Parliament House and smoke sauna. Read more about recent enrichment activities on pages are several graduate programs available with teaching in English and the majority of them are tuition-free. Finnish universities are very interested in receiving more applications from US students to their degree programs, and an increasing number of universities have decided to co-sponsor Fulbright grants targeted particularly for degree seeking students. The Fulbright US student program also provides US master s and doctoral students the possibility to conduct part of their dissertation or master s thesis research in Finland. The grantee can pursue research as a part of Finnish research group or independently. Finnish universities are particularly interested in hosting US doctoral students for their Fulbright period. Combining coursework with research is also common during a Fulbright in Finland. In addition, even independent research which will not be counted towards a degree can be undertaken during a Fulbright in Finland. Text: Karoliina Kokko, Program Manager, Fulbright Center The good news came at a dinner and reception held in March at the Embassy of Finland in Washington, DC. Guests at the reception and dinner included 17 of our alumni and avecs : Tanya Allen (1998), Christian Benefiel and Elizabeth Preston Moorshead (2010), Roger and Marja Booker (1974), Henry (Hank) and Kari Bullamore (2000), Mariam Jean Dreher (2005), Ben Hedrick (2009), Michael Holmes (2001), Lynn Lahti- Hommeyer (2009), Kay J. Kohl (2010), Kenneth and Jane Kolson (2006), Mackenzie Lind (2010), Suzanne Louis (2001), Geoffrey McGovern (2008), Joshua Meltzer (2002), Barbara Mossberg (1982 & 1990), Margaret and Gerry Schueman (1996), Catherine Schuler (2004). Michael Holmes and his quartet, Atlantic Echo, brought tears to the eyes of those present with their heartfelt rendition of Sibelius Finlandia, as well as several other Finnish folk and tango tunes. Barbara Mossberg closed the evening with a reading of her poetry inspired by her Finnish experience, I Carry Finland, and It Is Light. Suzanne Louis made the announcement that Friends of Fulbright Finland plans to fund a new Fulbright Center grant program and is launching a campaign to raise monies in support of the endowment for this purpose. The grant will as- FoFF sist an American alumnus of the Finnish- Fulbright Program to return to Finland to renew and invigorate academic and professional connections made earlier. Ken Kolson established the precedent of giving by making the first gift to the Alumni Fund last year, thereby affirming that the project would have support from its own alumni. Ambassador Ritva Koukku-Ronde very graciously hosted the evening to honor alumni of the Fulbright program in Finland and to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Finnish-American academic exchanges through Fulbright. She emphasized the value of alumni in maintaining the program s vigor. Terhi Mölsä, Fulbright Center Executive Director, offered an overview of the highlights of the Fulbright program in Finland. Its history in fact commences just after World War I, when Finland received a loan from the US for rebuilding the country. Fast forward to 1976 and the remaining loan payments were made as a lump sum which was used to create the Trust Fund that exists today and will help to finance the Fulbright program in Finland in perpetuity. During the six decades that Finland has participated in the Fulbright program, over Americans have had a Finnish Fulbright experience that s a lot of alumni! Text: Suzanne Louis, Fulbright Finland Liaison Gifts to the Friends of Fulbright Finland Alumni Fund will be deposited into the Trust Fund and the yield will be used to support the new grant. The campaign goal is $25,000. For a donation letter, or answers to your questions, please contact Friends of Fulbright Finland Liaison, 9

10 Introducing Fulbright Center's Partners Fulbright Center has a formal cooperation agreement with selected higher education institutions, foundation and organizations. Get to know them by reading the earlier articles in the series online at. Students at HAAGA- HELIA University of Applied Sciences. HAAGA-HELIA University of Applied Sciences Business Skills Served to Taste 10 Presentation is everything, not only in fine dining but in selling any product. That is why the students at HAAGA- HELIA learn sales and service skills as a central element of every program. Both students and staff benefit from the school s international network of truelife businesses, all within a top-notch education system. One of our goals is to prepare cosmopolites. The graduating students should not only know about other cultures but to be able to function within them and posses all the necessary tools starting from language and cultural know-how, says Vice President Paula Kinnunen. That s were HAAGA-HELIA s staff comes into play. Lecturers that come from different cultures, regardless of the subject that they teach, always bring a different cultural aspect to the classroom, passing on their way of thinking and doing. In the case of Fulbright grantees, a year at The Managing Director and President of HAAGA-HELIA Ritva Laakso-Manninen with Vice President Paula Kinnunen. HAAGA-HELIA is an opportunity to form a long lasting, mutual collaboration that continues far beyond the visit. Got Service? HAAGA-HELIA leans on the element of business. While half of the 10,500 students are getting a degree in some field of business, the rest also gain a strong understanding of it in their specific field, whether it s hotel, restaurant and travel management, sports and leisure, journalism, management assistance, vocational teaching, or information technology. Within the School of Business, we offer many orientations: sales and service, finance, human resources, financial management, and marketing. The programs include courses on what we call responsible business; how to handle employees in an ethically correct manner as well as considering the natural environment, says Kinnunen who is also in charge of the Business Education Unit. The school naturally supports students who are interested in entrepreneurship:

11 every campus has a StartUp School were business ideas turn into real businesses. Skills Beyond Graduation HAAGA-HELIA accepts about ten percent of all the applicants annually. Thus, the students form a selected and highly motivated group, majority of which is currently involved in working life. Many of our students already have work experience. The challenge for us is to make the education so appealing that the students feel the need to arrange their careers around the classes. Because of their strong motivation the students are a pleasure to work with, says the Managing Director and President of HAAGA-HELIA Ritva Laakso-Manninen. In addition to producing cosmopolites, HAAGA-HELIA wants its graduates to have strong competence in digital know-how. Technology advances at a rapid pace. We want our students to be aware of the different ways to take advantage of the latest technology when they enter working life, and therefore it needs to be used in creative ways in all learning scenarios, Kinnunen explains. All the learning methods are related to real-life business in a way that involves the students, which also promotes their ability to actively debate and participate in their future work community. Active Research Research at HAAGA-HELIA takes the form of development projects. Acquiring scientific data goes along with learning, as students have an active role in the projects under the supervision of specialists. All the research is based on the needs of actual companies, and the campuses are naturally located at the heart of business-life. Let s, for example, look at a process of developing a global brand for a company. The university uses its widespread international network to promote the brand, and the students learn through their involvement in every step of the process. To top it off, information on how such global brands are built in different cultures is attained for future reference. This type of process has been acknowledged as a scientific method, and it s often called the action research perspective, Kinnunen defines the method. Development projects range from conceptualizing the design and services at the Helsinki-Vantaa Airport to different sporting events, and advancing the physical, virtual and social aspects of future conference hotels. The Head of International Services Sirpa Holmström points out that the opportunity to network in Europe is one of the top perks for Fulbright grantees at HAAGA-HELIA. Our Network at Your Fingertips The Head of International Services Sirpa Holmström points out that the opportunity to network in Europe is one of the top perks for Fulbright grantees at HAAGA-HELIA. It all starts with the atmosphere within the school. Ten percent of the students are international, and the permanent staff is made up of numerous nationalities, including the United States. Language will not become a hindrance, since everyone speaks good English. According to Holmström, the international mobility in terms of student and lecturer exchange programs is very active. We host about three hundred exchange students every year, and we are used to receiving lecturers from other countries for short and long visits, she adds. As far as the surroundings go, adjusting to Helsinki is made effortless. The country s capital is safe and clean, and commuting is easy thanks to the good infrastructure. Those who arrive with a family get to experience the world-renowned school system from the perspective of their children, not to forget about the four unique seasons in Finland. Read more at What Is a University of Applied Sciences? Finland has a binary higher education system, consisting of 16 universities and 25 universities of applied sciences. Both confer bachelor's and master's degrees, but only universities can confer doctoral degrees. The emphasis of universities is on academic research and education based on research, while the UAS concentrate on bachelor level, more professionally oriented education, and R&D aligned with local and regional actors. - A university of applied sciences has a focus on the needs of working life, says Sirpa Holmström. - Through close contact with businesses, the students get an education that provides up-to-date knowledge and practical skills for entering business-life.

12 60th Anniversary Celebrating the 60th Anniversary of the Finnish-American Fulbright Agreement The year 2012 marks the 60th anniversary of the signing of the Fulbright agreement between the governments of Finland and the United States. The agreement, signed on July 2, 1952, made it possible for Americans to discover Finland on Fulbright grants, and to join the tradition of the Finnish ASLA grantees that had begun two years earlier. The anniversary year has been celebrated on both sides of the Atlantic. The Finlandia hall at the Embassy of Finland in Washington D.C. was full of both new and old Fulbrighters in late March when Ambassador Ritva Koukku-Ronde hosted a celebration for the friends of Fulbright Finland, Fulbright alumni and the Finnish Fulbright study tour participants. Ambassador Koukku-Ronde congratulated the long running program and thanked the alumni for maintaining the vigor of the transatlantic relations. Ambassador of Finland Ritva Koukku-Ronde congratulated the long running program and thanked the Finnish-American alumni for maintaining the vigor of the transatlantic relations. - The Program and the alumni really deserve all of our appreciation for the magnificent work they are doing, said Ambassador Koukku-Ronde in her speech. The evening at the Finnish Embassy included exchange of stories of experiences in Finland, music, speeches and poetry reading and, of course, Finnish delicacies. 12 The Atlantic Echo with Fulbright alumnus Michael Holmes (second from left) performed traditional Finnish songs at the 60th Anniversary reception at the Embassy of Finland in Washington D.C.

13 In May, on the other side of the Atlantic, the Finnish Ministry for Foreign Affairs hosted an Anniversary Award Ceremony and Reception at the beautiful House of the Estates in Helsinki. On behalf of the government of Finland, remarks were delivered by the Speaker of the Parliament, Mr. Eero Heinäluoma. The greetings from the American Embassy were brought by Chargé d Affaires Danny Hall. Both emphasized the importance and influence of the Finnish-American Fulbright program. - In addition to all its academic merits, the Fulbright program has also had an important role in strengthening the ties between Finland and the United States of America, and in creating lasting networks in so many important fields from the academic world to culture, trade and politics, said Mr. Heinäluoma. The event also paid tribute to this year s U.S. Fulbright grantees conclud- Speaker of the Finnish Parliament, Mr. Eero Heinäluoma emphasized Fulbright s role in creating lasting networks in the academia, culture, trade, and politics. ing their grant year in Finland. On the program they were represented by Fulbright Graduate Grantee Lyndsey Hoh with a unique solo performance on tuba. The group of 33 new Finnish Fulbright grantees for also received their Fulbright Grant Certificates at the Anniversary event. The Finnish-American Anniversary year continues with two more events coming up later in the year Graduate Grantee and the first recipient of the ASLA-Fulbright Alumni Ambassadorial Award, Ms. Linda Haapajärvi conveyed words of thanks on behalf of all of the new Finnish grantees at the House of the Estates.

14 14 EU-NATO Seminar 2012 American Fulbright grantees in Europe have had a chance to participate for years a seven day seminar on EU and NATO organized by the Commission for Educational Exchange between the United States, Belgium and Luxembourg. This year s seminar took the Fulbrighters to Luxemburg to attend a session of the Court of Justice of the European Community, Brussels for visits at the European Commission, Council of Ministers and the European Parliament, Mons to visit the general headquarters for the armed forces of the NATO alliance, and Brugge for a visit at the College of Europe. Fulbright representatives from Finland, Nancy Commins and Paul R. Burgess, share their Seminar experiences with the Fulbright Center News readers. I don t know exactly what I expected when I applied to attend the EU/NATO seminar, but what I received was incredibly rewarding -- an understanding of European institutions that will forever shape my view of global politics. In addition, I was exposed to the breadth of the Fulbright program and a talented group of mostly young people from the U.S. The long days with hours of sitting and listening, usually in comfortable chairs, sometimes at the same tables used by European politicians and diplomats, were a barrage of information. I came away with a sense of optimism. Officials were eloquent about the possibilities and realities of the EU balanced by the recognition that their views were not shared by all individuals in the member countries. I was struck by the fact that there is a process for being admitted to the EU, but not for exiting. Most enlightening was our morning at the European Court of Justice where we watched arguments in a case involving Finnair, argued in Finnish. Paul and I felt a special affinity and connection as the only Finns in the group. I learned that the ECOJ exists not to settle cases, but to rule on the interpretation of laws. Because a decision in any case will affect policy and practices across Europe, usually other countries weigh in with opinions on both sides of cases. At NATO, we received a fascinating document entitled Working Together for Peace and Security that provides a graphic overview of the intersecting, overlapping and divergent groupings of countries that are included under the umbrella of various organizations and alliances. (The United Nations, The Council of Europe, The European Union, the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) and NATO). Not represented on the document, but the subject of many of the presentations was the EuroZone, the EU countries sharing the Euro as a common currency. And I thought U.S politics were complicated! Inspirational Quotes: In Europe, rather than focusing on majority vs. dis- What I received was incredibly rewarding -- an understanding of European institutions that will forever shape my view of global politics.

Regarding the NATO Russian Council (NRC) Cooperation is the best choice. Partnership is the only path forward. As an educator specializing in linguistic and cultural diversity I was often distracted from the content by thinking about the logistics of people from so many different languages, backgrounds and experiences coming together to communicate, make policy and effect change. Being in Belgium and Luxembourg surrounded by Fulbrighters sharing their experiences from a dozen different countries also helped me to define my feelings about Finland as more than European. The appreciation for nature and willingness to be outdoors regardless of the weather, the sense of responsibility, the pulla all things I can point to as part of why I love being a Finnish Fulbrighter!

15 Fascinating Whirlwind of an Experience An eight-day seminar, spanning two countries, four cities, at least 29 speakers; 3 females and 26 males, several waffles, 34 Fulbright grantees, and infinite numbers and facts like I just listed. Numbers aside, the European Union and NATO seminar was a fascinating whirlwind of an experience. Speaking directly with policy and decision makers at these structures shed a lot of light on an intricate balance of law, initiative, crisis management, education, and government. The European Commission left me with an especially strong impression. The institution was fascinating in its degree of Euro-centrism. The Commission promotes the common interest, and though comprised of one member from each of the 27 member states, the commissioners are to act without influence from the governments which appoint them. There is a strong degree of trust in the common interest. From my American perspective this was not so easy to understand immediately, but with some historical reminders the picture becomes clear. European integration is the common interest that guarantees security in several forms. Countless wars between countries of this continent have caused immeasurable damage and distrust. Economic and social integration create serious barriers Overall it was a tremendous opportunity to experience the institutions of the EU, NATO, and SHAPE, and also to meet the other grantees from around Europe. Paul R. Burgess at the European Council. to future conflicts, improve relations, and are the means to the common interests: stability, security, and strength. Many of the speakers presented with a surprising level of frankness, it was unexpected to get less of the run around, and more reality and personal views from those in their positions. This came with the employ of Chatham House Rule; where the information presented can be used or repeated, but with neither the identity nor the affiliation of the speaker. So we received a clearer picture of the situation, at no risk to the speakers themselves. While we received some information on mistakes made, and weaknesses of institutions in these difficult times for the EU, we were certainly also given an impression of unified strength and resilience. Each visit left me more enthusiastic for the benefits of European integration. Ideas of near collapse of the Euro or lasting dissension; expunged from my thoughts, for the current time at least. In any case, the thought of one speaker seems relevant; Europe is only advancing when there is a crisis. Let us hope that the current situation is just a step towards progress. Overall it was a tremendous opportunity to experience the institutions of the EU, NATO, and SHAPE, and also to meet the other grantees from around Europe. My most sincere thanks to the organizers in Belgium and Luxembourg, each speaker, and to my fellow grantees for creating such a positive experience. Being based in Lapland it was beneficial to hear the impression others had of my research and of Lapland in general. Many imagined it far off, cold, and snowy, but I was happy to return to my research in Inari, to enjoy some silence, and reflect on a wonderful experience. Paul R. Burgess Fulbright Graduate grantee University of Lapland 15

16 Testaus ETS panostaa Pohjoismaihin Suomeen lisää testikeskuksia Pohjoismaat ovat tänä vuonna Educational Testing Servicen (ETS) erityinen kohderyhmä tänä vuonna. ETS:n tavoitteena on perustaa muun muassa Suomeen lisää testikeskuksia, joissa voi suorittaa englannin kielen TOEFL-testiä sekä maisteri- ja tohtoriopiskelijavalinnoissa käytettävää GRE-testiä. Yhdysvaltain Princetonissa sijaitsevan päätoimiston lisäksi ETS:llä on kansainvälinen, 80 maassa toimiva ETS Global verkosto. ETS Global-toimistot tuovat apua ja palveluja lähemmäs ETS:n testien käyttäjiä. Euroopan ETS Global -toimisto sijaitsee Hollannissa. Toimiston Academic & Government Relations Director María Victoria Calabrese ja Academic Relations Specialist Stella Saliari vierailivat tammikuussa Suomessa. Maria-Victoria Calabrese kertoo ETS:n työskentelevän suomalaisten korkeakoulujen kanssa erittäin mielellään, sillä TOEFL ibt ja GRE-testien tarve kasvaa: vierailuamme suomalaisiin korkeakouluihin luonnehtivat ammattimaisuus, erinomaiset keskustelut ja vieraanvaraiset ihmiset, Calabrese kiittelee. Avaamme lähitulevaisuudessa lisää TOEFL ibt testikeskuksia ja järjestämme englannin kielen opettajille TOEFL ibt Propell -työpajoja. Suunnittelemme jo seuraavaa vierailua toukokuulle Calabrese kertoo ja muistuttaa, että ETS:n edustajat vierailevat korkeakouluilla tarpeen vaatiessa milloin tahansa. ETS Globalin Stella Saliari oli myös mukana korkeakoulujen kv-asiain kevätpäivillä Lahdessa toukokuussa. Hän oli yksi Measuring English language skills: PTE Academic, IELTS, and TOEFL -roundtablen puhujista. ETS Globalin Euroopan toimistolta saa apua TOEFL-testiin liittyvissä kysymyksissä: puh PBT-testin järjestäminen loppuu Educational Testing Servicen (ETS) mukaan TOEFL-testin kynä-paperi -version järjestäminen lopetetaan tänä vuonna. Euroopassa, Suomi mukaan lukien, viimeinen TOEFL PBT -versio järjestetään toukokuussa. Toukokuussa 2012 suoritetun testin tulokset ovat voimassa kaksi vuotta ja niitä voi lähettää kynä-paperiversion hyväksyville oppilaitoksille vielä toukokuuhun 2014 asti. Nykyinen, tietokoneella tehtävä TOEFL ibt-versio otettiin käyttöön vuonna Sen jälkeen kynä-paperiversiota on käytetty niissä maissa, joissa tietokonetestausta ei ole pystytty järjestämään tai testikeskuksia ei ole ollut riittävästi. Suomessa kynä-paperitestiä on järjestetty ajoittain helpottamaan ruuhkaa. ETS perustelee kynä-paperi -testiversion lopettamista erityisesti kahdella seikalla: tätä nykyä 96 prosenttia TOEFL-testin tekijöistä maailmanlaajuisesti suorittaa TOEFL ibt-testin ja testikeskusten määrä lisääntyy entisestään. Lisäksi korkeakoulut käyttävät mieluummin TOEFL ibt-testin kuin TOEFL PBT-testin tuloksia, sillä TOEFL ibt mittaa luetun- ja kuullunymmärtämisen sekä kirjoitustaidon lisäksi myös puhutun kielen taitoa, jota TOEFL PBT ei mittaa. Suomessa TOEFL-testin voi suorittaa Helsingissä, Premerian testikeskuksessa, www. premeria.fi. Testiajan voi varata osoitteesta Fulbrightereiden matkassa Fulbrightereiden matkassa on sarja, jossa seurataan kahden ASLA-Fulbright Graduate Grant -stipendiaatin, Linda Haapajärven (kuvassa vasemmalla) ja Silja Häkkisen, valmistautumista Fulbright-vuoteensa, stipendikautta Yhdysvalloissa sekä kokemuksia ja palautetta Fulbright-vaihdon jälkeen. 16 Syksy meni stipendistä iloitessa ja lisärahoitusta hakiessa Helsingin yliopiston fysiikan laitoksella ilmakehän pienhiukkasia, niiden ominaisuuksia ja ilmastovaikutuksia väitöskirjaansa tutkiva Silja Häkkinen kertoo syksyn menneen nopeasti Fulbright-stipendistä iloitessa ja lisärahoitusta hakiessa. Kaikeksi onneksi Väisälän säätiö näki tutkimukseni tarpeellisena ja tukee Amerikan matkaani. Raha-asioista ei siis tarvitse enää stressata, Silja iloitsee. Olin ollut yhteyksissä erääseen alani ryhmään Columbia University:ssä New Yorkissa jo ennen kuin sain tietää saaneeni Fulbright-stipendin. Kun rahoitus sitten järjestyi, ryhmän professori Faye McNeill kirjoitti minulle mielihyvin virallisen kutsukirjeen lähinnä viisumin hakua varten. Olemme myös tarkentaneet tutkimussuunnitelmaani, jotta tiedän mistä aloittaa syksyllä, Silja kertoo kuulumisistaan. Kevään edetessä olen alkanut pikku hiljaa ymmärtää, että olen todella lähdössä uuteen maahan, uusien ihmisten keskelle aivan pian. Viisumin järjestäminen on varmasti kevään suurin urakka, mutta onneksi Fulbright auttaa tässäkin asiassa. Odotan syksyä jännittyneenä, mutta innolla, Silja toteaa. Pariisin École des hautes études en sciences sociales -yliopistossa tohtoriopintojaan suorittava Linda Haapajärvi kertoo Harvardin varmistuneen hänen isäntäyliopistokseen. Harvardin lukuvuosimaksu on iso, hieman yli dollaria, jopa visiting junior fellowlta. Kutsukirjeen sain jo helmikuussa, mutta sitten piti vielä virallisesti hakea paikkaa melko työlään hakumenettelyn kautta, Linda kertoo. Hakeminen maksoi noin 100 USD ja hakemukseen tuli liittää cv, motivaatiokirje, kaksi suositusta, todistusjäljennökset, tutkimussuunnitelma, selvitys siitä, ketä henkilökuntaa haluaa Harvardissa tavata, mitä seminaareja kuunnella ja miten tehdä omaa tutkimusta, Linda valottaa hakuprosessia yliopistoon. Tuntui mukavalta, kun asiat muuttuivat konkreettisiksi, ja Harvardista tuli iso kirje, jossa oli tietoa mm. yliopistosta sekä harrastusmahdollisuuksista ja -järjestöistä, Linda kertoo. Toukokuussa Linda ja Silja osallistuivat Fulbright Centerin päivän kestävään orientaatioseminaariin, jossa stipendiaatteja valmennettiin USA:n kauttaan varten.

17 Alumni News Swell on Stage American artist and Fulbright alumna Juliacks recently finished graphic novel, Swell has been adapted for play. The play had its world premiere at Culture Project s in Women Center Stage Festival at the Living Theatre in New York in March The comic, Swell tells the story of Emmeline Grouse who lives in a small town in Vermont, in a house overlooking an abandoned cemetery where she and her sister Lucy would often play. Adapted from the comic art novel, Swell explores the memory-shifting and kaleidoscopic journey of grief, immersing the audience in a lush visual landscape as Emmeline confronts her fears, dreams and imagination. This theatre combines the comix narrative in the languages of sound, video, architecture, and performance art, resulting in a spectacular, character-driven reflection of loss.

18 Henkilökuvassa alumni Paavo Kolin jalanjäljissä Tohtori Matti Parjanen lähti Yhdysvaltoihin oppi-isänsä Paavo Kolin kannustamana. Koli oli sotasankari ja ensimmäinen ASLA-stipendiaatti. Kun Tampereen yliopistossa 40-vuotisen uran tehnyt yhteiskuntatieteiden tohtori Matti Parjanen yritti 1980-luvun alussa vedota yliopiston johtoportaaseen ja saada professoreita käyttämään opiskelijapalautejärjestelmiä, huomasi hän sohaisseensa arkaan paikkaan. Joku vaati minun erottamistanikin, mutta minä lähdin sitten Yhdysvaltoihin tutkimaan aihetta, Parjanen naureskelee 30 vuoden takaisia tapahtumia. Parjanen lähti Yhdysvaltoihin ASLA- Fulbright-tutkijastipendiaattina vuonna 1983 keräämään tietoa sikäläisestä opetuksen arvioinnista. Amerikkalaiset opiskelijapalautejärjestelmät olivat jo 1980-luvulla maailman huippua, sillä opiskelijapalaute on ensiarvoisen tärkeää yhdysvaltalaiselle yksityiselle yliopistolle, jossa lukukausimaksut ovat korkeat. Parjanen ei asettunut yhteen tiettyyn yliopistoon, vaan kiersi ympäri Yhdysvaltoja erilaisissa, niin pienissä kuin suurissa yliopistoissa ja keräsi matkalaukkuunsa opiskelijapalautelomakkeita. Ratkaisu oli hyvä, sillä yhdysvaltalaiset yliopistot ovat keskenään varsin erilaisia. Jos olisin ollut vain yhdessä paikassa, olisin saanut kovin yksipuolisen kuvan Amerikasta. Olen onnellinen silloisesta fiksuudestani. Jokin yliopistoja myös yhdisti: palautejärjestelmistä vastaavat toimistot ja organisaatiot olivat kaikkialla yhtä vihattuja. Opettajat, professorit ja tutkijat kokivat taitojensa arvioinnin kontrollointina ja kyttäyksenä. Lukukauden jälkeen Parjanen palasi Tampereelle innostuneena ja matkalaukku pullollaan lomakkeita, joita hän sitten suomensi. Vastaanotto ei ollut lämmin. Tuli niin paljon valituksia, että minä suutuin ja heitin roskiin koko Amerikan matkalaukkuni sisällön, Parjanen muistaa. Innostava ilmapiiri Stipendikautensa aikana Parjanen vaikuttui amerikkalaisten yliopistojen iloisesta ja vapaasta ilmapiiristä, joka on hänen Fulbrightstipendin ensisijainen tavoite ja pääasia on vastavuoroisen kontaktin muodostuminen. mielestään suomalaisille yliopistoille vieras. Kun joku sikäläinen laitoksen tutkija saa stipendin tai ulkomaanmatkan tai kirjansa valmiiksi, kaikki onnittelevat häntä vilpittömästi. Sellainen ilmapiiri on suosiollinen innovaatioille ja uudistuksille, Parjanen kehuu. Ulospäin suuntautunutta Parjasta ihmisten iloisuus ja ystävällisyys ilahdutti, eikä tavanomainen stereotypia, amerikkalainen pinnallisuus haitannut. Stipendikausi tartutti Parjaseen Amerikantaudin, joka alkoi oireilla noin joka kolmas vuosi. Ainoa lääke oli päästä taas käymään Atlantin takana. Ja niin Parjanen kävikin. Hän johti yliopistokoulutuksen arviointia koskevia delegaatioita ja vei niitä vierailuille Yhdysvaltain eri yliopistoihin, jotka vuosien varrella tulivat tutuiksi. Matkoillaan Parjanen sai useita ystäviä yhdysvaltalaisista kollegoista, joiden kanssa hän myöhemmin vaihtoi sähköpostilla vinkkejä ja artikkeleita ja joilta saattoi tarvittaessa kysyä neuvoa ongelmatilanteissa. Fulbright-stipendin ensisijainen tavoite ja pääasia on vastavuoroisen kontaktin muodostuminen, Parjanen pohtii. Amerikan tuliaisina ajatus alumnitoiminnasta Fulbright-stipendikausi antoi Parjaselle paljon niin henkisesti kuin konkreettisestikin. Vaikka palautelomakkeet lensivät 1980-luvulla roskiin, vuonna 2003 julkaistiin Parjasen kirja otsikolla Amerikkalaisen opiskelija-arvioinnin soveltaminen suomalaiseen yliopistoon. Nykyään Suomi on kehittynyt tällä alueella. Amerikan tuliaisina Parjanen kantoi kotiin myös ajatuksen alumnitoiminnasta. Parjanen ehdotti yliopiston johdolle alumnijärjestön perustamista, ja niin Suomen ensimmäinen yliopistollinen alumniyhdistys aloitti toimintansa 25 vuotta sitten. Parjanen toimi yli 20 vuotta Tampereen yliopiston Alumni ry:n aktiivina, myös sen puheenjohtajana. Aluksi alumnitoiminnalle naureskeltiin, mutta nyt sitä osataan arvostaa. Alumniyhdistys on silta yliopiston ja ympäröivän yhteiskunnan välillä, Parjanen kiteyttää. Paavo Kolin opissa Matti Parjanen aloitti sosiologian opinnot vuonna 1959 Yhteiskunnallisessa Korkeakoulussa, joka vuonna 1960 muutti Helsingistä Tampereelle ja sai myöhemmin nimekseen Tampereen yliopisto. Heti muuton jälkeen tapahtui onnekas sattuma, jonka seurauksena Parjanen pääsi tutkimusapulaiseksi professori Paavo Kolin johtamaan puolustusvoimia koskevaan tutkimusprojektiin. Tämä sattuma tulisi määrittämään hänen koko akateemista uraansa. Vuonna 1962 Paavo Kolista tuli Tampereen yliopiston rehtori ja opiskelija Matti Parjasesta hänen assistenttinsa. Rehtori Kolin rinnalla Parjanen pääsi näkemään läheltä kuinka yliopistoa johdetaan. Sittemmin Parjanen on itse toiminut opetus- ja tutkimusvirkojen lisäksi lukuisissa 18

19 hallintotehtävissä, kuten yliopistovaltuuston puheenjohtajana, vararehtorina ja täydennyskoulutuskeskuksen johtajana. Tutkimus ASLA-stipendiaattien sosiaalisesta taustasta Vuonna 1967 Parjanen teki tutkimuksen ASLA-stipendiaattien sosiaalisesta taustasta aineistonaan hakemusasiakirjat vuosilta Tutkimuksessa kävi ilmi, että varhaiset stipendiaatit olivat vahvasti lähtöisin yläluokkaisista, akateemisista, kaupunkilaisista perheistä. Heillä oli ollut muita paremmat mahdollisuudet opiskella englantia. Monille ASLA-stipendi oli elämän ensimmäinen stipendi sekä ulkomaanmatka. Ensimmäinen ASLA-stipendiaatti Paavo Koli myös innoitti Parjasta lähtemään Yhdysvaltoihin. Minun suhteestani Amerikkaan ei voi puhua puhumatta myös Kolista, Parjanen sanoo. Mannerheim-ristin ritari Paavo Kolin on sanottu olevan ASLA-stipendiaatti numero yksi, sillä ensimmäisten suomalaisten stipendiaattien lähtiessä Amerikkaan Koli oli siellä jo valmiiksi. Hän oli saanut stipendin pieneen Marshall Collegeen Virginiaan vuonna 1949, vaikka ei osannut lähtiessään englantia. ASLA-kaudeksi Paavo Koli siirtyi Chicagon yliopistoon, missä hän tutki skid row -ilmiötä haastatellen syrjäytyneitä ja kodittomia kaupungin siltojen alla. Stipendi-kausiensa välissä Koli työskenteli autonkuljettajana ja hovimestarina Hollywoodissa. Hänen työtoverinsa oli filmitähti Clark Gablen autonkuljettaja. Hän ystävystyi myös itse Gablen kanssa. Koli palasi Suomeen vuonna Myöhemmin Paavo Koli viittasi luennoillaan usein Amerikan kokemuksiinsa ja suositteli amerikkalaisia teoksia opiskelijoilleen ja tutkijoilleen. Amerikan vaikutusta oli myös Kolin arvostava asenne ihmisten radikaalejakin ideoita kohtaan. Hän on ollut yliopistomaailmassa varsinainen Amerikan suurlähettiläs, Parjanen toteaa. Unohdettu legenda Monialaisen Tampereen yliopiston perustajaksikin kutsutun Paavo Kolin tarina on vuosien varrella päässyt unohtumaan. Kertoakseen Kolin tarinan Matti Parjanen päätti eläkkeelle jäätyään kirjoittaa unohdetun legendan elämäkerran. Ajattelin, että hänen roolinsa ja merkityksensä täytyisi jäädä kirjoihin. Koli on syytä nostaa esiin sekä sotasankarina että yliopistosankarina, Parjanen sanoo. Vuonna 2009 julkaistu ensimmäinen Alumniyhdistys on silta yliopiston ja ympäröivän yhteiskunnan välillä. osa Marskin ritari Paavo Koli: Itseään käskenyt mies kertoo Kolin nuoruudesta ja sotavuosista. Parhaillaan Parjanen kirjoittaa toista osaa, joka sisältää myös Kolin värikkäät seikkailut Amerikan stipendiaattina. Tarina päättyy surullisesti Paavo Kolin itsemurhaan vuonna Parjanen muistaa Kolin tarmokkaana ja innovatiivisena miehenä, joka suhtautui erittäin myönteisesti opiskelijoihin. Hän oli sekä erinomainen luennoitsija että hyvä johtaja, joka luotti alaisiinsa. Itselleen Koli oli ankara. Kolin elämäkerran kirjoittamisen lisäksi Matti Parjasen eläkepäivät kuluvat muun muassa sanomalehtiä ja tietokirjoja lukiessa. Kevättalvisin Parjanen virittää verkkonsa jään alle pyydystääkseen mateita, joiden mätiä hän kerää. Mäti nautitaan tietenkin mätijuhlissa snapsien kera. Mutkikas tapa nauttia snapseista, vihjailevat ystävät. Kaikista tärkeintä on silti aika lastenlasten kanssa. Kirjoittaminen pysähtyy heti, kun lasten lapset tulevat käymään.

20 US Grantee News Highlights of Each year US Fulbrighters are invited to participate in various events and academic seminars throughout Finland. Here are some highlights of this year. Enjoying and Making Art at EMMA Saastamoinen Foundation invited the Fulbrighters for a visit to EMMA, Espoo Museum of Modern Art. It is one of the largest art museums in Finland and plays a profound role in the field of modern art. The permanent exhibition presents a selection from The Saastamoinen Foundation Art Collection while the other half displays changing domestic and international exhibitions. Saastamoinen Foundation is a partner of the Fulbright Center, sponsoring a Fulbright scholar grant for an American scholar in Health and Environmental Sciences at the University of Eastern Finland in Kuopio. After the welcoming words by our hosts Mr. Petteri Karttunen and Mrs. Marja Karttunen, both representing the Board of Directors of the Saastamoinen Foundation, the group was led on a tour by Museum Educator Ms. Maria Vähäsarja. Fulbrighters had an opportunity to see the newly opened exhibition, World in a Box by Juhani Harri. After the tour, Fulbrighters participated in a hands-on workshop in association with the exhibition of Juhani Harri and happened to be the very first group to do so. The workshop concept in Espoo s Museum of Modern Art emphasizes deepening the artistic experience. Learning by doing is essential. Techniques may vary and can even be far from the artist s original, but the point is to build a bridge between art and the viewer s own experience to have an insight, says Museum Educator Maria Vähäsarja. Fulbrighters created their own story in a box with the various materials provided. It is surprising how little adults usually do crafts or anything creative during their hectic everyday lives. This is why I was happy to see everyone immerse themselves in the work, talking and laughing at the same time. What we had as a result was a wide collection of art objects, surrealistic collages and conceptual ideas, concludes Vähäsarja.

In her presentation titled Crafting a Comprehensive Response to Cultural and Linguistic Diversity: A Perspective from the US, Dr. Commins pointed out that classrooms nowadays are multicultural one way or another, and the bottom line is how to best organize ourselves to meet everyone s needs. The school system has to take responsibility for each and every student. Issues of linguistic and cultural diversity in the classroom are connected to larger issues of race, poverty and prejudice, said Dr. Commins, a specialist in multicultural education. Instruction organized with second language learners needs in mind will benefit everyone in the classroom, Commins emphasized. Coming from the University of Colorado at Denver, Dr. Commins is a Fulbright Scholar for the academic year Her project "Immigrant Integration - Preparing the Next Generation of Teachers" is a joint collaboration between the University of Turku, The City of Turku and Norssi / Turku International School.
