Virginia Tech chosen to host Mandela Washington Fellows from Africa

Twenty-five young community leaders from Africa will spend six weeks at Virginia Tech this summer for intensive hands-on civic leadership training.

The university has been selected to serve as an academic institute for the Mandela Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders, the flagship program of President Barack Obama's Young African Leaders Initiative.

"Civic leadership is at the heart of what Virginia Tech is about," said Vice President for Outreach and International Affairs Guru Ghosh. "Ut Prosim (That I May Serve) is our core value, and hosting emerging leaders from the African continent on campus is one way we can disseminate our core values. We are excited to be part of this initiative and to welcome these extraordinary individuals to our institution and region."
