She has also done graduate work at the Institut des Etudes Politiques and the Haute Ecole du Protestantisme in Paris and at the University of Illinois. Professor Shulmistras has lived and studied in France (the Sorbonne, Université de Dijon, CAVILAM in Vichy), and taught English in a French lycée for two years. She initiated the establishment of Alpha Mu Gamma at AU, served as its national president from 1996-1998, and is currently chair of the AMG scholarship committee.
She has coordinated and taught the Saturday Morning French classes for the community since 1975, when she helped establish the International Snow Class exchange program (now Back-to-Back) between Anderson and France. She travels to France annually, interprets at international events, and does translations. She continues her academic involvement by attending and presenting at professional conferences attended by foreign language teachers and at Alpha Mu Gamma biennial conventions.
