Alumnus Curt Rice (’84) is Appointed Executive Director at Fulbright Norway

Professor Curt Rice will become the next Executive Director for Fulbright Norway. Curt brings experience in higher education and research from both the United States and Norway to this position. He moved to Norway in 1991 after his PhD work at the University of Texas at Austin. He worked at the University of Trondheim (now NTNU) for two years before moving to the University of Tromsø in 1993 where he remained until 2015. Here he served as the founding director of UiT’s first Center of Excellence among other appointments.

Since then, Curt has served as Rector at both OsloMet (Oslo Metropolitan University) and NMBU (the Norwegian University of Life Sciences). He is a native of Minnesota, a citizen of both Norway and the United States, and a Fulbright alumnus (Belgium 1984-1985). He graduated from Augsburg in 1984.

Internationalization in higher education and research has engaged Curt both personally and professionally throughout his entire career, and as global tensions mount, he finds this work to be even more important. He begins his new position as the Executive Director at Fulbright Norway in August 2024. Congratulations!
