‘World Fellows Night’ an opportunity to meet the 2015 fellows
The Yale community is invited to meet the newest class of Yale World Fellows during World Fellows Night on Thursday, Sept. 24 at 5 p.m. at the Afro-American Cultural Center, 211 Park St.
“I am delighted to welcome the World Fellows to Yale,” said Emma Sky, director of the World Fellows program. “The fellows have settled in to their new home in the Jackson Institute where they have daily interaction with students. This is my first cohort as the director of the program, and it is wonderful to meet such accomplished and talented individuals who are making a real difference in the world.”
The 2015 class of 16 fellows is the 14th cohort of Yale World Fellows and includes a Cuban performance artist, an Indian conflict reporter, and a Ukrainian political activist (and rock star). This cohort is also the first to be under the guidance of the Jackson Institute for Global Affairs at Yale, which aims to inspire and prepare Yale students for global leadership and service.

“I’ve interacted with World Fellows regularly over the years and know the kind of creativity, energy, vision and experience they infuse into the university experience,” said Sky. “They are wonderful sources of inspiration and mentors for our undergraduate and graduate students.”
Yale World Fellows is the university’s global leadership development initiative and a core element of Yale’s ongoing commitment to internationalization. Each year, the university invites a group of mid-career professionals from a wide range of fields and countries for an intensive four-month period of academic enrichment and leadership training.
