Mandela Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders-Leadership in Civic Engagement Institute-University of Delaware

Institute Overview

Our Leadership in Civic Engagement Institute at UD provides a broad survey of civic engagement as it relates to the United States and sub-Saharan Africa. More specifically, the Institute explores how citizens, as individuals and members of organizations, and their interactions with government, business, the media, technology and the like have shaped and continue to shape U.S. politics and society – and how these experiences compare and contrast with those of the Mandela Washington Fellows. Each week, Fellows will participate in academic sessions, practical sessions, leadership skills training, site visits, community service, peer collaboration and cultural activities.
