CityU Dean Kurt Kirstein joins World Affairs Council Fellows Program
Kurt Kirstein, City University of Seattle’s School of Management Dean, was accepted to the World Affairs Council Fellows Program 2010-2011.
Steven Olswang, CityU of Seattle’s Provost, recommended Kirstein for this prestigious fellowship that began earlier this month with a kick-off breakfast near the council’s downtown Seattle headquarters.
Now in its 60th year, the World Affairs Council is a membership-based, non-profit organization with a focus on global citizenship through local and civic conversation programs. Its goal is to create opportunities for people to become more engaged in building a world community.
As a fellow, Kirstein and 32 other accomplished professionals will participate in monthly special seminars where they will examine international issues affecting the world. Topics include U.S. leadership in foreign affairs, global economic interdependence, nuclear responsibility, and sustainable third world development. Seminars include formal presentations by selected speakers. Fellows also will prepare discussions through advance readings.
