Julia Adams Named to Newly Endowed Directorship of Fox Fellowship
Julia Adams, professor of sociology and professor in international and area studies, has been named the first Joseph C. Fox Director of the Fox International Fellowship.
The appointment was announced by Ian Shapiro, the Henry R. Luce Director at the MacMillan Center, and was made possible by a gift from Joseph Carrère Fox (Yale ‘38), which established a new fund in the Yale Endowment.
Adams will provide academic leadership for the Fox International Fellowship, as well as high-level advisory support for the Fox Fellows, particularly those in residence at Yale each year, but also those from Yale who are studying at the Fox partner universities.
Designed to enhance the education of future international leaders, the Fox International Fellowship is a direct two-way student exchange partnership between Yale and 11 of the world’s leading universities. It was established to identify and support talented individuals who will be future leaders in their respective fields and who, by virtue of those leadership positions, will contribute to decisions affecting global policies and international relations. The Fox International Fellowship is administered by the MacMillan Center.
The program began in 1989. Yale’s partners include Moscow State University, Russia; Sidney Sussex College at Cambridge University, United Kingdom; the Free University of Berlin, Germany; Fudan University in Shanghai, China; the University of Tokyo, Japan; Institut d’etudes de Politiques de Paris (Sciences Po), France; Jawaharlal Nehru University, India; El Colegio de Mexico; Bogazici University, Turkey; Tel Aviv University, Israel; and University of Cape Town, South Africa.
