Maxwell welcomes Humphrey Fellows
Twelve Hubert H. Humphrey fellows from four continents have begun their
fellowship at Syracuse University’s Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public
Affairs. The Executive Education program welcomes these accomplished
mid-career professionals who are embarking on a ten-month experience of
graduate academic study, professional development, and cultural exchange at SU.
The 2015-2016 Humphrey Fellowship
Program consists of 167 fellows from 90 countries hosted by 15 U.S.
universities. Since 1978, more than
5,000 fellows from 159 countries have participated in the program. It is sponsored and funded by the U.S.
Department of State and is administered by the Institute of International
This year’s fellows hail from
Cameroon, India, Kyrgyzstan, Madagascar, Mauritius, Moldova, Myanmar, Nigeria,
Pakistan, Peru, Serbia, and Togo. They
were selected after a highly competitive and intensive application process
based on their commitment to public service and their potential for leadership
in both the public and NGO sectors.
Education is thrilled to welcome the Humphrey fellows to the Maxwell
School. Their experience and global
perspective add to the depth and breadth of the School,” stated Margaret Lane, director
of the Syracuse Humphrey fellowship program and assistant director of Executive
Education. “After their fellowship, they
will be equipped with added skills, knowledge and networks to help make
transformative changes in their respective countries. We look forward to their numerous
contributions in the classroom as well as in professional and cultural exchange
opportunities during this year.”
During their stay in Syracuse, the
Humphrey fellows will be available as a resource for classes, clubs, and
organizations. For more information,
