FORT WAYNE, Ind.—Four business people from various cities in Germany will visit Indiana University–Purdue University Fort Wayne (IPFW) Tuesday, March 27, as part of their John McCloy Fellowships in Urban Affairs. They will meet with various members of IPFW’s administration and faculty from 1:10 to 2 p.m. in the Office of International Education, located in the new section of Walb Student Union, Room 145.
According to the American Council on Germany’s (ACG’s) website, “McCloy Fellows in urban affairs receive an up-close look at city management and government administration across the Atlantic. Past German fellows have taken part in City Council meetings, toured U.S. cities accompanied by various officials, and attended the annual National League of Cities convention. American fellows are likewise given access to German officials.” The fellowships are sponsored by the ACG, which is “an independent, nonpartisan, nonprofit organization which promotes dialogue among leaders from business, government, and the media in the United States and Europe. The ACG strengthens transatlantic understanding and coordinates policy initiatives on key issues in the post-September 11th world.”
The meeting between the McCloy Fellows and IPFW is intended to be a casual exchange of ideas and information between the two groups. The meeting is open; however, due to space constraints the public is not invited to attend. Members of the media are invited to cover the session.
