WHAT IS THE AMBASSADOR’S CORNER?
The Ambassador’s Corner, a partnership between the College of Charleston’s School of Languages, Cultures and World Affairs and the Charleston Library Society, promotes informed dialogue about today’s pressing global interests. The program brings together accomplished, high-profile leaders from international affairs for a conversation led by the College of Charleston’s own Ambassador James D. Melville, Jr. As a veteran diplomat with over 30 years of experience in the Foreign Service, he is the perfect host for an evening of lively discussion with renowned leaders.
We invite you to join the conversation.
