Mandela Washington Fellows & the IUPUI Community: Getting to Know Each Other through Intercultural Learning

Join us for an interactive activity that brings together the Mandela Fellows and the IUPUI community around a lively discussion of our varied cultural beliefs, values, and practices.

Twenty-five African leaders between the ages of 25-35 participating in the Mandela Washington Fellowship Program will arrive on our campus Monday, July 15th. This prestigious fellowship was created to empower young people through academic coursework, leadership training, and networking. The Fellows will be at IUB and IUPUI participating in a professional development program focused on civic leadership. In addition to representing a variety of professional and research interests, they come from 20 different countries, represent multiple cultures, and speak a variety of languages.

The IUPUI community also represents a culturally diverse group of faculty and students. While largely from the state of Indiana, we are from different states, regions, countries, and continents, and bring our own collective programming to campus every day.

Hosting the Mandela Fellows provides our faculty, staff, and students with a rich opportunity for intercultural exchange right here at home. Understanding why others think the way they do, what's important to them, and why they do what they do can yield interpersonal, academic, and professional benefits.
