October 2019 Edition of the Ford School feed

October 24, 2019

Dear friends:

The Ford School’s Weiser Diplomacy Center, a dynamic hub for the study and practice of diplomacy, formally launched this fall with much activity, including an incredible series of visits from an all-star lineup of leaders. Hillary Rodham Clinton, Condoleezza Rice, Samantha Power, Stephen Hadley, Steve Biegun, and more--each meeting with students and faculty, delivering public talks, and inspiring future generations of leaders. Read more about the Weiser Diplomacy Center launch series and find videos and pictures here.

Plenty of other high-impact work is happening at the Ford School too. Here are a few of the highlights from this fall edition of ‘the Ford School feed’:

Plenty of exciting activity is on the horizon, as well--including the fact that the University of Michigan was selected to host one of the 2020 Presidential Debates next October

 Alumni, it was a thrill to welcome over one hundred graduates back to Ann Arbor last month for our Homecoming Reunion. View pictures from the day’s events here. You all can and do play such a big role in our work. Nominations are currently open for seats on our Alumni Board: eager to work with the Alumni Board to drive forward our mission and initiatives? Learn more and put your name forward for service here.
