In my work with her, she proved she can research, analyze, write and present on a range of topics for a range of audiences, including diplomats and senior decision-makers. In addition, she has a strong grasp of new technologies and how to use them for effective policy objectives; a very valuable skill in this day and age."

Her teaching style is very practical and skills-based and she genuinely cares that her students understand the realities of life in cultural policy, with all of its perks and challenges.  Aimee did an excellent job of creating dynamic lessons,  pulling on the expertise of practitioners in different fields to help paint an accurate picture of the varied environment of the field. She is a dynamic and engaging professor and mentor." Jessica Brown, Georgetown University, Masters in Public Policy 2010 and MBA in International Organizations from the University of Geneva

"Professional, dedicated and genuinely a pleasure to work with, Aimee Fullman is the ideal research supervisor.  Over the months we worked together, she not only proved to be an excellent manager but also an insightful mentor who has continued to help me to this day."
Patrick Sabol, Research Assistant (Summer 2008), Robert Sterling Clark Foundation

"I first met Aimee Fullman in Spring 2008, when I was beginning research on a thesis study that focused on the U.S. visa process and cultural exchange.  Aimee willingly shared her expertise and experience in cultural policy, suggested additional resources for me to refer to, and counseled me on many aspects of the academic research process.  My final thesis project would not have been the same without her mentorship and advice.  Aimee has a true passion for the arts, culture, and in educating the future leaders of this field.  I am grateful to have met and worked with her, and I believe that she has the potential to make a positive impact on many other students."
Stephanie Evans Hanson, American University M.A. Arts Management 2009
