The Fashion Institute of Technology is proud to announce that Adjunct Associate Professor, Denise H. Sutton, PhD, has been selected for a Fulbright Award at the University College of Education – Lower Austria, in Vienna. As a Fulbright grantee in the Specialist Program, Dr. Sutton will present a series of lectures on the topic of innovation in teaching, including adapting best practices from various fields beyond education, yet to be applied to the classroom.

Dr. Sutton is the author of Globalizing Ideal Beauty: Women, Advertising, and the Power of Marketing (Palgrave Macmillan, 2009, 2012).

The Fulbright Program is devoted to increasing mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries. It is the world’s largest and most diverse international educational exchange program. Fulbright alumni have become heads of state, judges, ambassadors, cabinet ministers, CEOs and university presidents, as well as leading journalists, artists, scientists and teachers. They include 60 Nobel Laureates, 86 Pulitzer Prize winners, 74 MacArthur Fellows, and thousands of leaders across the private, public and non-profit sectors. Since its inception in 1946, more than 390,000 “Fulbrighters” have participated in the Program. 

FIT congratulates Dr. Sutton on this exemplary achievement.
