Leaders for Democracy Fellows arrive at Maxwell

Maxwell LogoTwenty-two young people from fifteen Middle Eastern and North African countries arrived over the weekend to attend the seventh annual Leaders for Democracy Fellows (LDF) program conducted by the Executive Education Program.  Participants between the ages of 25 and 40 with a bachelor's degree, English language fluency, and about five years of work experience have the opportunity to acquire knowledge and skills that will benefit an organization, sector, or specific community in their home country.  They will learn about democracy through academic coursework on the SU campus until April 19 and then will participate in practical internships in Washington, D.C. until June 15, when they return home. 03/18/13
