School of Business Dean’s Advisory Council member Rick Colbourne has been named a Fulbright Visiting Researcher in Indigenous Entrepreneurship at the University of Arizona.

Colbourne’s research focuses on how the practice of Indigenous entrepreneurship interacts with the complexity and diversity of Indigenous communities to facilitate and/or constrain the development of Indigenous entrepreneurial ecosystems, and involves understanding how an Indigenous community’s particular geographical location, traditional knowledge, culture, values, traditions and social needs frame and influence Indigenous entrepreneurial activities.

The Foundation for Educational Exchange between Canada and the United States of America (Fulbright Canada) is a binational, treaty-based, non-governmental, not-for-profit organization with a mandate to identify the best and brightest minds in both countries and engage them in residential academic exchange.
