Community invited to meet
World Fellows at open house, series
The Yale community will have many opportunities this fall to meet the 2007 World
Fellows and hear their points of view on important global issues.
The 18 World Fellows — who hail from a diverse range of countries — are
spending an intensive semester exploring critical issues through a program of
individualized academic enrichment, a World Fellows Seminar and leadership training.
They have the full resources of Yale at their disposal. By bringing these highly
accomplished men and women to campus, the Yale World Fellows Program seeks to
build a global network of emerging leaders and to broaden international understanding
at the University.

Fellows Night,” beginning at 5 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 20, at Betts House,
