"Dr. Lauren Lindstrom, Dean of the School of Education at UC Davis, has been selected to serve as a Fulbright Specialist in the area of education, an appointment she will hold for three years. She is the second faculty member at the School of Education to serve as a Fulbright Specialist. Dr. Nadeen Ruiz, Lecturer/Supervisor in our Multiple Subject Credential Program, is on the roster for 2014-2019.
'I’m very proud to be representing the School of Education and the university in this way,' Lindstrom said, 'and I’m excited to share what I’ve learned over the years about improving lifetime outcomes for children and young adults with disabilities. I know that I’ll learn a lot from my experiences as well.'
Lindstrom’s areas of research include career development, autism and developmental disabilities, employment and education for youth with disabilities. She has been recognized nationally and internationally for her work promoting employment and access for individuals with disabilities and in 2013 received the 'Employment for All' award from the European Association of Service Providers for Persons with Disabilities."
