Passion for cultural diplomacy inspires German IWP student

IWP views cultural diplomacy as a serious instrument of statecraft, and student Ben Fricke understands this concept from firsthand experience. He participated in his first international exchange program to England when he was 10.  He comments, "I see myself as a product of cultural diplomacy to some extent because of all the exchanges I have done and the volunteer opportunities I have had abroad."

IWP announces the retirement of Professors Ken deGraffenreid and Charles Smith

"Ken and Chuck have both rendered the Institute invaluable service. On top of all they did in the classroom, they both were faithful counselors and mentors to our students and alumni, also rendering them enormous help in finding professional opportunities to serve our country.

All of us here - faculty, staff, students, alumni, and trustees, owe them both an enormous debt of gratitude. We hope that they both will continue, insofar as they are able, to remain involved with IWP. I hope you will all join me in wishing them a happy and healthy retirement."

-John Lenczowski
