Last year, Bloomfield College Professor of Finance, Dr. Anita Pasmantier, was named a Fulbright Scholar, joining the ranks of distinguished Fulbright alumni, some of whom have become heads of state, judges, ambassadors, cabinet ministers, CEOs, and university presidents, as well as leading journalists, artists, scientists, and teachers.

“I am honored to receive this Fulbright Scholar award,” Dr. Pasmantier said at the time. “I am very appreciative of the support that I have received from the Bloomfield College faculty and administration during the application process.”

As a Fulbright scholar, Dr. Pasmantier taught Advanced Corporate Finance at Libera Università Internazionale degli Studi Sociali Guido Carli (LUISS University) in Rome, Italy during the 2018 Spring semester. Dr. Pasmantier also conducted research on how to assess a writing intensive course in business. She also attended several functions held for the Fulbright Program.

On June 14, all of the Fulbright scholars located in Italy met at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for several presentations by the Fulbright Italia organization. That same day, they attended a reception as the Italian Ambassador to the US, Armando Varricchio, was in Rome for the celebration of the 70th anniversary of the Fulbright program in Italy. The event was hosted by Italy’s new Foreign Minister, Enzo Moavero Milanesi, at the Farnesina, home of the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, in Rome with the participation of U.S. Ambassador to Italy, Lewis M. Eisenberg, and members of the Fulbright Commission Italy. 

After the inspiring events at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, a reception was held at the private residence, Villa Taverna, of Ambassador Lewis Eisenberg.  Dr. Pasmantier spoke with Ambassador Eisenberg during the reception expressing her incredible time teaching and doing research in Rome.

On December 11, the same group of Fulbright scholars were invited to the sister event for the 70th anniversary Fulbright celebration hosted by the Embassy of Italy in Washington, D.C. and the United States Department of State. Dr. Pasmantier was able to speak with Armando Varricchio, the Italian ambassador to the U.S. regarding her positive experience with the Fulbright award she received.  Following the presentations at the Italian Embassy a reception was held at Villa Firenze, the private residence of the Italian Ambassador to the US. 

“I truly consider myself very fortunate that I was able to participate in the amazing Fulbright program and was lucky enough to meet all of these incredible people,” said Dr. Pasmantier. “It was an experience I will cherish and always remember fondly for the rest of my life.”
