In 1995, Dr. Sarkar-Dey she was awarded a Fulbright grant, which sent her to Nairobi, Kenya, to teach at Kenyatta University for 10 months. It was there she met Pope John Paul II. In 2007, she participated in an Ignatian pilgrimage, traveling to Spain and Italy with faculty from Loyola, St. Joseph’s University, and the College of the Holy Cross, learning about the history of the Jesuits and discovering the many similarities that exist between the Catholic faith and her own (Hinduism).
