Maxwell School's Executive Education Welcomes 2013-2014 Hubert H. Humphrey Fellows
The 2013-2014 Hubert H. Humphrey Fellows have
embarked upon their year of academic study, professional development and
cultural exchange at the Maxwell School. Executive Education welcomed the ten fellows in
August for orientation, before beginning their official program year.
The Fellows hail from eight different
countries, including China, Iraq, Kazakhstan, Mexico, Pakistan, the
Philippines, the Slovak Republic, and South Africa.
This is the fifth year the Maxwell School are
hosting the Humphrey Fellows, who are focused in the areas of public
administration, NGOs, and leadership.
These Fellows are mid-career professionals and leaders in their
respective countries, whose experience integrates into Executive Education and
its mission of preparing leaders for a global community.
“We are excited to welcome our fifth
cohort of Humphrey Fellows to Syracuse University’s Maxwell School--- ten
esteemed mid-career professionals, all of whom are emerging leaders in their
fields. We look forward to the
tremendous knowledge and insight the fellows will bring to the program, and for
the lasting contributions fellows will make to the school and community,” said
Margaret Lane, director of the Syracuse University Humphrey Fellowship Program.
For the 2013-2014
Fellowship year, Syracuse University is one of 17 campuses across the
U.S. hosting approximately 185 Fellows
from 93 countries. The Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program was
initiated in 1978 and is funded by the U.S. Department of State and
administered by the Institute of International Education.
