Bernard John Stuetz III, who earned a Master of Education from Arcadia University in 2020, completed his third virtual fellowship sponsored by the U.S. Department of State and administered by the Center for Intercultural Education and Development at Georgetown University.

Stuetz completed the five-month virtual project with English language learners in the Ministry of Higher Education, Science, and Technology (MESCyT). Through these projects, fellows work with local teachers, students, and educational professionals to improve the quality of English language instruction offered at prestigious universities, other academic institutions, and cultural centers.

For his fellowship, Stuetz taught foundational English skills and English for the Specific Purpose of Learning (ESP) for diplomacy and international relations.

Stuetz serves as ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) Point Person at the Northeast Community Propel Academy in Philadelphia. Stuetz received his Master’s in Literacy Studies: TESOL and Literacy, from Arcadia in 2020. In April 2018, Arcadia sent Stuetz to Paris to present his research on educating immigrant youth at the American Graduate School’s International Relations conference.
