The Mroz Global Leadership Institute is planning a busy semester with speaker series, mentoring and professional development programs for students.
1) Global Ambassadors Program. We recruited a group of nine students for the Global Ambassadors Program. This student leadership program is designed for students interested in civil and foreign service. Global Ambassadors will meet weekly with Mroz Institute’s director to learn about the US foreign service, foreign policy, and international agenda of US agencies. Students will work on practical skills required to function effectively in the foreign policy environment and will interact with guest speakers about foreign service and diplomatic work.
2) EWI History Project. We continue to move forward with the EWI History Project to preserve and make available EWI archives to students and scholars. The archives and oral history project will be launched in time for the inaugural convening in spring 2022. Our team received 1/8 TB of data (125.4 GB), which consists of over 26,000 digital objects, in addition to the the physical collection of 14 bankers boxes, which include published materials and photographs. Our archivist has begun processing the collection.
3) Visiting Global Fellows Program. We will launch the Visiting Global Fellows Program in spring 2022 by inviting prominent internationalists who will will spend 1-2 weeks at CofC interacting with faculty and students and engaging their professional networks.
4) We are planning the Mroz Institute inaugural convening for March 20-22, 2022 to celebrate the East West Institute and its many accomplishments. There will be panels and discussion sessions on international topics of vital importance. There will be opportunities to experience the EWI archives/history project and contribute to its oral histories. There will be time for networking with the members of the EWI Society and a special reunion for EWI alumni.
