In 2006, Harriet Mayor Fulbright created the J. William & Harriet Fulbright Center, a nonprofit dedicated to promoting peace through international education and furthering her late husband’s legacy. She currently serves as president of the organization.
The J. William & Harriet Fulbright Center is a non-profit, non-governmental organization with a unique Board of Directors, separate from the Fulbright Program which is sponsored by the United States government through the Department of State. The Center does not benefit from any federal government appropriation to the Fulbright Program. The Center works cooperatively with the Institute of International Education (IIE), the Council for International Exchange of Scholars (CIES), Fulbright Commissions, and the Fulbright Association.
