JAMESTOWN, N.Y. – Greg Rabb, a professor of political science at SUNY Jamestown Community College, will participate in two international fellowship programs this summer.
Rabb received notice in early April that he had been accepted into the International Studies Research Lab at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign as well as an invitation to participate in the 2021 Brussels-Lux Study Tour through the European Studies Center at the University of Pittsburgh.
“My acceptance into both programs at two excellent universities is acknowledgment of not just my work but more importantly the work of my students and our college to globalize our curriculum earlier than most community colleges even thought about,” said Rabb, a faculty member at the college since 1986.
The International Studies Research Lab is an initiative that promotes the internationalization of community colleges nationwide through the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign’s Center for Global Studies. Applicants included faculty members, librarians, and administrators from across the country. The lab will be held virtually from May 17 through July 30.
The Brussels-Lux Study Tour aims to give participants “first-hand knowledge of the European Union and its institutions.” The tour is organized in partnership with the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Florida International University with funding from the U.S. Department of Education and the European Union Delegation to the United States.
Rabb pioneered JCC’s effort to become the first community college to join the SUNY Model European Union simulation in 1988. He holds a bachelor’s degree in political science from Canisius College, a master’s degree in urban planning from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and a juris doctorate from the State University of New York, University at Buffalo.
