A police superintendent from India, a member of Congress in Argentina, a human rights lawyer from Mongolia — these are just some of the accomplished individuals who comprise this year’s cohort of World Fellows. On Thursday, Sept. 14 the community will have the opportunity to meet them all during World Fellows Night at Horchow Hall, 55 Hillhouse Ave.

The 2017 World Fellows are extraordinary individuals who share a commitment to open society and a belief that what unites us is far greater than what divides us,” said Emma Sky, director of the Maurice R. Greenberg World Fellows Program. “They join our network of over 300 World Fellows, working to make our world a better place for all.”

Part of Yale’s Jackson Institute for Global Affairs, the program brings 16 mid-career, professionals to campus for a four-month fellowship in which they contribute to Yale’s intellectual life, collaborate with peers, and mentor students. The 2017 cohort brings the total number of World Fellows since the program’s start in 2002 to 309 fellows, representing 87 countries.

World Fellows Night, which begins at 5:30 p.m., is a chance for members of the community to meet the fellows and learn about their backgrounds and potentially find opportunities for collaboration. All are invited.
