Please join us at this signature event to introduce Indiana University and the surrounding communities to the Mandela Washington Fellows. During this evening event, a small group of the Fellows will share individual personal stories about their passions and the issues that they and their communities encounter that inspired them to be civic leaders.
About the Mandela Washington Fellowship Program
For the third year, Indiana University has been selected as an institute partner for the 2018 Mandela Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders. The fellowship provides the IU community opportunities to network and collaborate with young African leaders while also empowering the fellows through academic coursework, leadership training, mentoring, professional opportunities, and local community engagement. The IU Mandela Washington Fellows will participate in a six-week executive-style professional development institute focused on civic leadership, hosted by IU’s Office of International Development and IUPUI’s Office of International Affairs.
The fellows will be at IUPUI between June 20 and July 2, and will then transition to IU Bloomington, where they will stay until July 28. At IUPUI, OIA, the School for Public and Environmental Affairs, Lilly Family School of Philanthropy, and the Kelley School of Business will provide leadership development workshops for the fellows.
