Col-lo-qui-um

On Wednesday, Feb. 20, Vice President of Student Services John Marshall will recap his recent travels to Europe as a Marshall Memorial Fellow at 12pm in UC 222. Marshall was named a 2012 Marshall Memorial Fellow by the German Marshall Fund– a distinction earned each year by a select few young professionals who are chosen from across the United States and Europe to participate in a multi-disciplinary exchange fellowship.

During the fellowship, Marshall traveled to Brussels, Belgium; Berlin, Germany; Thessaloniki, Greece; Zagreb, Croatia, and Istanbul, Turkey. During his travels, Marshall met with diplomats, security officials, educators, non-profit organizations, think tanks and policy entrepreneurs, as well as key economic and political leaders across Europe.
