Corey Hancock, BA Political Science 2002

While at FAU Corey participated in study abroad programs in Spain and Ecuador. He then earned a Masters in Spanish at FAU before joining the Peace Corps, which stationed him in Bolivia. Corey learned one of the native languages of Bolivia, Quechua, while working on projects in the mountains of the Andean country. He later joined USAID and was stationed in Peru.

From there his career has taken him literally around the world, and his job has required him to continue to learn languages. His most recent posts required learning Russian and French. He is currently the Program Director for USAID in Cote d’Ivoire, where he is responsible for US development programs in health, inclusive economic growth, democracy and good governance in various countries of Africa. Corey was nominated as the 2017 Outstanding Young Owl for the College of Arts and Letters.

FACULTY

Carol Prusa, MFA, Professor of Painting/Drawing

Professor Prusa spent the summer preparing a solo show at the Sarasota Art Center, which opened in September. She also traveled to Nebraska for the total eclipse. As a result of this trip, she is beginning a project based on seeing the totality of the eclipse and reading about American women astronomers.

Last spring, Professor Prusa had a solo show in Geneva, Switzerland and also at the Boca Art Museum where the glass art she made at the Berengo Furnace in Murano, Italy was on display. Some of Prusa’s work is now on display at the FAU Biennial Exhibition.
