Reviews

"The International Fellowships Program had a bold vision: to advance social justice around the world by investing in higher education for future leaders. By selecting for social commitment rather than mere academic excellence, it opened up new possibilities for individuals to make a difference in their communities. The essays in this volume are written by practitioners who worked out this vision. Their stories show how institutional choices can make a difference in advancing social justice for all." - Keith Clemenger, Vice President, GreenPoint Group
