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.
