The Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program is a grant sponsored by the International Institute of Education (IIE) funded by the Department of State. It is a Fulbright Exchange Program, which brings accomplished mid-career professionals from developing countries to the United States for a year of study, professional development, and networking. The goal of the Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program is to foster knowledge, mutual understanding and serve as a basis for beneficial professional partnerships between citizens of the United States and their counterparts abroad. The program provides broad professional enrichment through a combination of activities tailored to the Humphrey Fellows' interests. All Humphrey Fellows participate in workshops, conferences, and professional affiliations that provide interaction with leaders from all levels of government, multinational organizations, and the private sector. In addition to professional development, the fellows take MSU graduate courses and seminars during the fall and/or spring semesters. Fellows are also paired with community members in efforts to experience U.S. culture and practices. Lastly, fellows engage in a variety of community engagement activities in the East Lansing and greater Lansing area.
Sixteen major American universities have been chosen to host Humphrey Fellows based on the universities' excellence in designated fields of study and for the resources and support they offer the fellows. Since 2002, MSU has hosted 159 fellows from 80 countries. Humphrey Fellows at MSU have participated in a variety of areas of study and research, including business, economics, public policy, human resources, community sustainability, and law. Fellows bring an international perspective and years of experience, which they share with faculty and students, the university, and the community at large. In addition, fellows learn about American perspectives on leadership, professional practices, and culture.
The primary role of this position is to coordinate, facilitate and teach the Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Seminar during fall and spring semesters. Administrative duties include contributing to the development of multi-disciplinary research and programmatic elements on international development themes. This part-time position will collaborate with MSU colleges, centers, and departments and will be supervised by the MSU Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program Director.
