As the seasons change here in Medford, I am delighted to share several items of good news with you.

As you will read in the update on this, our 75th entering class, on page 5, these students were selected from a pool of over 1,600 applicants—an increase of 6% over last year’s applications. As in recent past years, Tufts University was the largest feeder school. I am also pleased to announce that Fletcher’s Board of Overseers, our Executive Faculty and I have successfully petitioned the Tufts University Trustees to formally authorize the School to grant the degree of Master of Laws (LL.M.) in International Law. The first class of the one-year program will enter in September 2008. Professor Michael Glennon has agreed to serve as the program’s Director. More information on Fletcher’s LL.M. can be found at: Other developments in the academic realm include the addition of new faculty members. Among these are Dr. Vali Nasr (F84), one of today’s leading scholars of the Middle East, who comes to us as professor of international politics and associate director of the Fares Center for Eastern Mediterranean Studies, and Dr. Kostas Lavdas, the new Constantine Karamanlis Associate Professor of Hellenic and Southeastern Mediterranean Studies. Our academic leadership has also undergone a transition as Laurent Jacque, Fletcher’s Walter B. Wriston Professor of International Finance and Banking, has completed his service as academic dean. He is succeeded by Peter S. Uvin, the Henry J. Leir Professor of International Humanitarian Studies and director of the Institute for Human Security.

major gifts from alumni and friends, have positioned Fletcher nicely as it moves into the public phase of its Beyond Boundaries Comprehensive Campaign, which seeks to raise $100 million for the School by 2011. These gifts are evidence that philanthropy at Fletcher, with an endowment of $110 million, provides donors the opportunity to have transformative and tangible impact. The Campaign formally launched last November, and, at present, Fletcher has achieved slightly more than 50% of its goal. The more difficult half, however, lies ahead. Your support, either through The Fletcher Fund and/or by making a campaign gift to a targeted campaign priority is being sought. More information about the Beyond Boundaries Campaign can be found on page 36 of this issue or by visiting: giving.tufts. edu/ways_to_give/support_fletcher.html.

As Fletcher strives to improve upon its excellence through our Comprehensive Campaign, I look to you, our alumni and friends, to support us in our mission to prepare leaders with a global perspective. Please know that your commitment to the School is invaluable and very much appreciated. I am grateful to find myself among individuals who, collectively, hold Fletcher in such high regard.

The many new developments at The Fletcher School are exciting indeed. Thanks to very generous gifts made by several members of our Board of Overseers, the School was able to increase its financial aid awards this year. As a result, there are 34 Board of Overseer Scholars among this year’s entering class of 183. The Board of Overseers’ gifts, along with several other

Record Number of Alumni Return for 2007 Fletcher Reunions Alumni hear from Nobel Peace Laureate, fellow alumni, faculty, and students. Two Fletcher Reunions were held in recent months: a May Reunion for the classes of 2002, 1997, 1992, 1987, 1982, 1977, 1972, 1967, and 1962; and a September Reunion for the class of 1957 (celebrating their 50th reunion) through the class of 1937. Both celebrations were very successful, with record numbers of alumni returning to campus (nearly 200 in May and 38 in September) from all parts of the world. Alumni from Maine to Florida attended, while others traveled from as far as Paris, Belgium, Madrid, Australia, and Thailand. Among events the alumni enjoyed were the Annual Fletcher Alumni and Student Clambake, faculty lectures by Professor Alan Henrikson and Professor Michael Glennon, lunch with Dean Stephen W. Bosworth and Tufts President Lawrence S. Bacow, a tour of Fletcher’s facilities, and student panels. Other highlights included Fletcher Class Day Alumni Address by alumnus and best-selling author Michael Dobbs, Ph.D. (F72, F73, F77); Commencement Address by 2003 Nobel Peace Prize recipient, Dr. Shirin Ebadi; and Convocation Address by vice chairman of Goldman Sachs (International) and managing director of Goldman, Robert Hormats (F66, F70).

Fletcher Welcomes 75th Incoming Class Collectively, they were raised on 6 continents and represent 40 nationalities. This year’s incoming class includes students from Brunei, China, Greece, Israel, Lebanon, Morocco, Nepal, Nicaragua, Paraguay, Serbia, Singapore, and Uzbekistan—as well as 24 states in the U.S. As the warm weather extended into early autumn and the Northeast tried to hold onto summer a bit longer, Fletcher’s seventy-fifth incoming class settled into life in Medford. The students arrived on campus for orientation activities in late August and began classes soon after the Labor Day holiday. An academically and professionally impressive group of individuals, the 183 newest members of the Fletcher community were selected through a highly competitive process, from a pool of over 1,600 applicants—an increase of 6% from last year. Collectively, they were raised on 6 continents and represent 40 nationalities. This year’s incoming class includes students from Brunei, China, Greece, Israel, Lebanon, Morocco, Nepal, Nicaragua, Paraguay, Serbia, Singapore, and Uzbekistan—as well as 24 states in the U.S. They speak over 50 languages, including: Arabic, Berber, Malay, Mandarin, Oshikwanyama, Portuguese, Tagalog, Thai, Urdu, and Uzbek. Students have earned degrees from 133 colleges and universities in the U.S. and abroad, including: University of California, Berkeley; Georgetown University; University of Pennsylvania; University of Tokyo; and Tufts University. They studied diverse disciplines ranging from anthropology, urban and regional planning, international finance, and economics, to Slavic studies, women’s and gender studies, journalism, and international relations. The professional backgrounds of the incoming class are equally as varied, with collective experience in all sectors. The class consists of military officers, government officials, returned Peace Corps volunteers, journalists, consultants, and lawyers. Students include: a political-military analyst specializing in

Latin America; a public affairs specialist at Ramstein Air Base in Germany; a law clerk to an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the Philippines; a research analyst at Euromonitor International; a broadcast journalist at the Russia Today television network; a management consultant at Accenture; and an agent with the Australian Federal Police. Students have: worked for the United Nations Office for Project Services in Afghanistan and the United Nations Development Programme in Cyprus; developed international trade case reports for The Stern Group, Inc.; worked in global supply chain planning in the semiconductor industry; founded a non-profit charity to fund East African education initiatives; specialized in law enforcement risk management in Kyrgyzstan; researched the differences in perception of morality among liberals and conservatives in Germany; worked with a microfinance union in Uganda; and coordinated an advocacy program for immigrant survivors of domestic violence. Though their academic interests are as diverse as the experience they bring to Fletcher, the most frequently pursued fields of study this year are international negotiation and conflict resolution, development economics, international security studies, international organizations, and human security. The 2007 – 2008 academic year is off to a great start, and the newest class has already begun to engage, challenge, and enrich the Fletcher community.

Matching a Fletcher Education to a Sustainable Future William Moomaw Professor of International Environmental Policy and Director of the Center for International Environment and Resource Policy The challenges are global, and the task is daunting, but the Center for International Environment and Resource Policy at Fletcher is preparing students for careers in which they can shape future policies and actions onto a more sustainable future. First, the need to improve the lives and well being of over one-third of the world’s population is a paramount concern. The issue of how this can be done in a manner that does not overload global and local environmental systems and the essential flow of resources and environmental goods and services is the essence of the stated UN goals of sustainable development. This goal can only be met if the resource intensive and highly polluting economies of industrial nations are transformed over the coming decades. The concept of sustainable development was introduced 20 years ago by the World Council for Environment and Development chaired by Dr. Bruntland, then prime minister of Norway and later secretary general of the World Health Organization. The basis of sustainable development is to meet the needs of the present generation while not compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs. It requires providing an equitable opportunity for all parties to improve their lives and pull themselves out of poverty now and in the future. To do so requires that the economy continue to provide goods and services through a social system of effective institutions. It has been difficult to operationalize this strategy, and both internationally and domestically there is a tendency to focus on “economic development,” “environmental protection” or “institutional building” rather than “sustainable development,” which requires that all three dimensions function effectively into the long-term future. Wherever one looks, the evidence that human activities are overloading natural systems and degrading the flow of environmental goods and services is unquestionable. The dramatic shrinking of arctic sea ice by one million square miles in September 2007 and the rapid loss of mountain glaciers that provide 40% of the earth’s population with a steady water supply are two reminders of global warming. The catch at ocean fisheries has been constant for 20 years despite intensification of effort, but many desirable species have declined to token levels. Deforestation for timber and land clearing is rapidly reducing forest cover, often through the use of devastating fires that are dramatically decreasing the biological diversity of the planet. Toxic chemicals and

transboundary air and water pollution continue to pose threats to people, livestock and wildlife. On the resource side, the end of the oil and gas era as we have come to know it is clearly visible during the 21st century as new discoveries have plummeted and prices have soared. Competition for energy and mineral resources has intensified in recent years, and the prices of many commodities have been bid rapidly upward. The market in the form of the insurance industry has decided to set rates for coastal storm damage at unaffordable levels or simply stopped selling it altogether as losses have increased, possibly due to climate change. Exploitation of energy and minerals is not only degrading land, air and water, but it is the backdrop against which international tensions are increasing as the result of competition among nations for resources. Diplomatic solutions

to humanitarian emergencies such as Darfur are being impeded by the perceived need to access oil and other resources. Nuclear concerns in Iran and North Korea are yet another dimension of the intersection between security and resource issues. The Center for International Environment and Resource Policy was founded in 1992, with an interdisciplinary program that addresses these issues in an integrated manner. The Center offers courses that address the scientific and economic basis of environment and resource issues, sustainable development, international environmental negotiations, international environmental law and the role of technology and policy development in creating solutions. This fall the Center is offering a course in the analysis of complex systems to provide students with the tools to identify multiple factors and their roles in causing political, economic and environmental problems and to identify the most effective points of intervention in addressing them. The Center also supports a set of research initiatives on energy and climate change, forestry, nitrogen pollution, global environmental governance and globalization and trade. The Center also works directly with governments in the preparation of policy relevant research. Faculty, staff and students work together to produce research papers and important reports. Two of our faculty were members of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change during the past two rounds, and each has been a chapter leader. Student research assistants and internships are provided or arranged by the Center, and career opportunities are made available jointly with the Office of Career Services. On the positive side, the stratospheric ozone hole seems to have stabilized in size as the Montreal Protocol has successfully phased out vast quantities of ozone depleting substances. At the most recent meeting of the parties, action was taken to accelerate the phase-out of remaining chemicals in both developed and developing countries to protect the ozone layer and reduce global warming. Several Fletcher graduates played key roles in making that happen. Fletcher students are also involved in the implementation of the Kyoto Protocol by serving in national and

international government agencies, at the Climate Secretariat, at the State Department and at foreign ministries around the world, as both researchers and as carbon traders and implementers of the Clean Development Mechanism. Our graduates serve as ambassadors, environmental ministers and foreign ministers in countries around the world, while others hold important positions in environment and resource management in major multinational corporations as well as leadership positions in the military and in international non-governmental organizations. Some of our Ph.D. graduates are faculty members in universities and research institutions in Latin America, Asia and the Middle East, as well as in the United States. In short, with a small faculty of three—a policy scientist, a negotiator and an economist—and an accomplished consensus builder as the associate director, The Fletcher Center for International Environment and Resource Policy has provided nearly 250 graduates with the knowledge and analytical skills needed to address the critical issues of environment, resources and sustainability that are facing the world. The challenges are great, but we are helping to build the capacity to turn them into opportunities. In October, the Nobel Peace Prize was jointly awarded to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. Fletcher Professors William Moomaw and Adil Najam, both members of CIERP, have between them contributed to six reports including the most recent, and have each held leadership positions as coordinating lead authors. The intersection between their own research (often engaging Fletcher students) and important international policy issues such as climate change, sustainable development and energy technology is a hallmark of the Center’s work. William Moomaw is Professor of International Environmental Policy and Director of the Center for International Environment and Resource Policy at The Fletcher School.

Fletcher Ph.D. Admiral James Stavridis Applies “Lessons Learned” at U.S. Southern Command By Charles M. Interrante, F05 and Fletcher Ph.D. candidate

A four-star Admiral stresses the necessity of communicating effectively and partnering with others to address complex regional problems. In August, Peru had just suffered a devastating earthquake as Hurricane Dean gathered force threatening to wreak havoc in the Caribbean. Coordinating a significant portion of the U.S. humanitarian response was Fletcher graduate Admiral James “Jim” Stavridis (MALD 1983, Ph.D. 1984) in his role as Combatant Commander of U.S. Southern Command (SOUTHCOM). In the aftermath of one disaster and in the midst of another, the former Fletcher student spoke to me by phone about the work of the organization he now leads. “We’ve got doctors and C-130 aircraft flying in and out of Peru where we’re working actively with the State Department and the Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance [OFDA]. I’ve got my people standing shoulder-to-shoulder with Peruvians, Colombians, and other government agencies. We’ve also got a large deck U.S. Navy ship headed to Jamaica to see if there is any assistance that can be rendered there. If Hurricane Dean moves on to Central America, we’ll be following it.” While still a graduate student at The Fletcher School, Stavridis’ impressive ability to manage multiple complex contingencies was already evident, according to his former professor Benjamin J. Cohen, now a political economist at the University of California, Santa Barbara. “Even when he was working on his dissertation under my supervision while also teaching and taking courses at the Naval War College,” Cohen says, “Jim insisted on taking the time to give me some lessons to polish up my tennis game. Needless to say, my playing improved noticeably, though I never came close to winning a set from him.” The son of a career Marine Corps officer, Jim Stavridis was intrigued by the sea from early childhood. Graduating with honors from the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis in 1976, the South Florida native decided, uncharacteristically perhaps for a career Navy officer, to major in English. Professor Alan Henrikson recalls about Stavridis that “when at Fletcher, although he certainly didn’t need to for any economic or professional reason, Jim taught a course to undergraduates at the Experimental College on the Literature of the Sea—not just Mahan, but Melville.” Since receiving his doctorate, Stavridis’ scholarly endeavors have not flagged. He has authored or coauthored over 75 books, articles, reviews, and commentary on maritime and national security topics.

Since assuming the leadership of SOUTHCOM in October 2006, Admiral Stavridis has applied his belief in the transformative power of words and ideas through a set of regionally-focused educational initiatives. These include the creation of a commander’s list of books and films addressing a broad range of topics, including regional history, economics, politics, and culture designed to engender sensitivity among American service men and women. “By reading the literature and watching the movies,” he says, “we’re trying to leverage cultural knowledge as a path to enhancing our ability to connect with these partners.” Beyond the cultivation of local knowledge, Stavridis also promotes mastery of the region’s major languages by those under his command. He sees the development of linguistic competence and cultural literacy by SOUTHCOM personnel as necessary components of his organization’s success. Accordingly, his organization aims for 60 percent proficiency in the three principal non-English languages of the Western hemisphere (Spanish, Portuguese, and French). “I believe that to know another person’s language is to know their life,” says Stavridis. “At SOUTHCOM, we are working hard to enhance our understanding of both the cultures and the languages of our regional partners.” Stavridis’ own successes, both at sea and ashore, have been significant. According to his official biography, from 2002 – 2004 he commanded the Enterprise Carrier Strike Group in Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom. He also served as a strategic and long-range planner for the chief of Naval Operations and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Stavridis believes the Fletcher Ph.D. was a key element in his successful navy career, enabling him to shoulder the duties of a series of jobs involving international relations and diplomacy. The Fletcher School, he asserts, significantly informed his worldview with respect to the necessity of multilateral and interagency approaches to complex problems: “It’s clear as we move into the 21st century that cooperative security is the model. There’s a global realization that the way we’re going to address common problems is through coalitions working together. We’re working that approach down here.” Since assuming the helm of SOUTHCOM, Stavridis has less time to devote to his passion for racquet sports, but has

ample opportunities to apply lessons learned at The Fletcher School to the complex issues confronting Latin America and the Caribbean. “Southern Command is responsible to the President and the Secretary of Defense for 32 countries, 13 territories, 450 million people, and 16 million square miles,” he says. “It’s an enormous collection of issues, and my fundamental approach to the job is one of interagency cooperation. Here in the U.S., we work with partner agencies and cabinet officials, while in the region we seek partnership with host countries. At SOUTHCOM, we’re not launching Tomahawk missiles downrange, we’re launching ideas.” Fletcher Professor Alan Henrikson remembers his former student as “one of the most resourceful persons—and quickest researchers—I have ever met.” He continues, “His curiosity, range of interests, and intellectual energy were

boundless.” Between summer 1981 and fall 1983, Stavridis not only earned the MALD degree and completed the comprehensive examinations for the doctoral degree, but was also awarded the distinguished Gullion prize for outstanding academic achievement. Less than a year later, he completed his dissertation exploring the role of maritime technology transfer in the negotiations surrounding the United Nations Law of the Sea treaty. At SOUTHCOM, Stavridis has applied his talent for research to gaining an appreciation for the breadth and complexity of the region’s challenges. “We’re in a very competitive market down here,” he says. “People such as the president of Venezuela, Hugo Chavez, and others have a different view of how the region should evolve.” Stavridis is quick to point out that the area’s fundamental problems— | Continues on next page

”poverty, terrorism, and narcotics as well as ecological and environmental problems that bleed into security issues”—do not submit themselves to traditional military approaches. “My view is that we are not undertaking military operations in the region but are undertaking a great deal of security cooperation. Our focus is on training, education, and security assistance. We must work together with host nations in areas such as counterproliferation and counternarcotics, while we engage closely with our interagency partners as we try to create positive effects.” Multilateralism and interagency cooperation are two concepts that Admiral Stavridis stresses when discussing the shared challenges confronting partners. While some have referred to Stavridis’ pragmatic approach to regional issues as the application of “smart” power, Stavridis’ reasoning seems to root itself as much in his heart as his head. “What we strive to create at SOUTHCOM transcends even what you might call a ‘good neighbor’ policy,” he maintains. “Let’s call it a ‘good relative’ approach. I believe that the Americas are a common home that we share together. I hate that expression ‘America’s backyard’—it is wrong in every dimension. It’s not our backyard; it is not even our front porch. It’s our home, and one in which we must be prepared to help each other like family.” Stavridis dismisses the notion that efforts by Cuba and Venezuela to win hearts and minds by providing healthcare to the area’s poor constitute a challenge to U.S. interests. Quite the contrary, he sees such efforts as emulating an American tradition of lending a helping hand to those most in need. “The efforts of Cuba and Venezuela to provide medical assistance alleviate problems in the region. For decades the United States has been deeply involved with the private sector and also in the governmental sector, through the Peace Corps on one hand and through charitable giving on the other. These efforts have been orders of magnitude greater than any other nation. Furthermore, I don’t agree with the premise that we are somehow in competition with other states in trying to do good things and trying to be a good partner.” Stavridis acknowledges that communicating effectively is one of his most significant challenges, given the negative perception of some with respect to a U.S. military presence in the region. “In my experience, you overcome entrenched perceptions one person at a time through human to human

In four months, it treated nearly 100,000 patients. That’s 100,000 people who encountered American men and women in uniform treating

them, giving them eyeglasses, fixing their cleft palettes, perhaps giving them an antibiotic for the first time. We also have veterinarians who are treating their animals. At the end of the cruise, there were nearly 400,000 patient encounters.” Stavridis believes that the efforts of SOUTHCOM play a stabilizing role and enhance regional security. “People are smart enough to know that occasionally you need effective, legal security forces to keep you safe from narcotraffickers and terrorists—two real scourges.” The Admiral also notes the rising influence of gangs, which are becoming an extraordinary problem and pose a significant threat to fragile democracies, particularly in Central America. “Ultimately, you have to show the human side, while also making the case that there are legitimate reasons for the use of force in certain situations. But you have to be very careful in this region because of the historical antibodies that exist.” Stavridis is an enormous believer in strategic communication and the power of persuasive discourse. “I want to underline up front,” he asserts, “that it all has to proceed from the use of the truth. All rhetoric fails instantly when it evolves from the desire to manipulate facts, to change what is real and true. The use of truth is fundamental to strategic communication. With that as a proposition, I believe there is great power in the truth. It starts tactically with getting your words and images out there to illuminate the good things that are occurring. At a higher level, you have to make the case in the ‘marketplace of ideas’ that we espouse the right solution set for the region.” The Admiral also seriously ponders the role of globalization through the media. “Consider the power of images, especially in today’s world when so much of the readership is actually a ‘viewership,’ looking at things on the Net, on TV, and on streaming video on handheld devices.”

Fl etcher Ne w s

To Stavridis, strategic communication is “showing that we want to be a good partner both in word and deed.” The two pillars of that message are the interagency process and partnering with host nations. “As we address the underlying regional issues of narcotics, gangs, the fragility of local democracies, natural disasters (as we’re seeing here this week), and human rights, we want to illuminate all of that with effective, sensitive, honest, and strategic communication. We have an enormous section here that deals with human rights training, striving to inculcate in our partner militaries the idea of human rights. Those are really the pillars of our program at SOUTHCOM as opposed to dropping ordnance, launching missiles, and driving expensive fighter planes around. There are parts of the world where we need to do that, but this isn’t one of them.” The Admiral credits his Fletcher School professors for the deep impression they made on his thinking. “In terms of my worldview, I think what The Fletcher School taught me is that no one of us alone is as smart as all of us thinking together. The Fletcher experience has given me a real proclivity for multilateralism in approaching the problems facing the world. These problems know no borders.” To illustrate, Stavridis emphasized the significance of demographic linkages. “Today in the U.S., about 15 – 18% of our population is Latino, and by the middle of this century that will be 25 – 30%.” He sees these commonalities as a unique network that can be leveraged to build economic opportunity. “If we are going to address poverty, gangs, and drugs, we need to build an economy and create a secure area in which to allow an economy to flourish. We’ve got to enlighten and encourage capitalism, too. I think it has been proven over the last couple of centuries that that is what lifts a nation out of poverty over the long run. That model has to be articulated, so the role of strategic communication is vital. Our role is to help these fragile democracies create security and stability, so their economies can unfold and really address their core problems.” Stavridis is quick to point out that his time at Fletcher was not all work and no play. He was especially fond of the social events he and his wife would host on Friday evenings after a hard week in the classroom. “We would invite as many as 20 people over to prepare and enjoy international cuisine,” he remembers. “We’d have one student coach the rest of us in cooking the food of their country. The rest of us would chop

while friends from places like Sri Lanka or Malaysia would guide the rest of us in preparing the meal. The food was fabulous.” Professor Cohen also remembered Stavridis’ love for good food. “It was Jim who introduced me, the son of a kosher butcher, to the pleasures of New England lobster. I still have the lobster pot he gave me as a wedding gift.” When asked to recall what he enjoyed most about his time at The Fletcher School, Stavridis cited the “incredible diversity of the student body.” “I’m sure everybody says this,” he continues, “but it was just amazing to have students from so many different countries in one place.” Asked to assess Admiral Stavridis’ performance beyond the walls of the classroom, Professor Cohen called him “one of the finest human beings I have ever had the privilege of knowing, a true gentleman in the best sense of the term. So long as officers like [him] continue to be recognized and elevated in the military hierarchy, I am confident that the country’s defense remains in safe hands.” To Professor Henrikson, Stavridis was and remains, “a lively, literate, and ever-learning man. And thus, a leader.”

Fletcher Creates LL.M. Degree The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy will launch a new LL.M. degree program in the fall of 2008. This LL.M. in international law will provide a broader contextual understanding not only of the law but also of the disparate societies and institutions in which it is made, interpreted, and applied—so critical to practicing law in the globalized 21st century. Taught by Fletcher’s distinguished international law faculty, the program will address the historical, political, cultural, and economic framework within which contemporary international lawyers operate. It will provide superb preparation for a new or continuing career in international or non-governmental organizations, government agencies, international businesses and law firms, diplomatic missions, foreign and defense ministries, media, or other international institutions. We welcome your feedback and suggestions, and invite you to contact Endri Misho, Academic Support, LL.M. Program, at or +1.617.627.4319. For more information:

Following Professor Laurent Jacque, Peter Uvin has been appointed as Fletcher’s new academic dean. Dean Uvin is also The Henry J. Leir Professor of International Humanitarian Studies. Vali Nasr (F84), considered one of today’s leading experts on Middle Eastern affairs, joins the Fletcher faculty as Professor of International Politics. His research on sectarian identity in Middle East politics and the growing significance of Shia politics following the Iraq war has been particularly influential. He is the author of The Shia Revival: How Conflicts within Islam will Shape the Future.

Kostas A. Lavdas has been named The Constantine Karamanlis Associate Professor in Hellenic and Southeastern European Studies. Born in Athens, Professor Lavdas studied political science, political sociology, public policy and international relations at Panteion-Athens, the University of Manchester, LSE and MIT.

Organized by Shifan Wu (Political Section at Embassy, F02) and Maria Stephan (F02, PhD05), the centerpiece of the event was the address given by Ambassador Zhou Wenzhong, the Chinese Ambassador to the U.S. The ambassador praised the long-standing exchange program involving Chinese diplomats at Fletcher and highlighted his views of current issues facing China-U.S. relations including, among other things, security issues, human rights abuses in Darfur and trade.

Typical of Fletcherites, conversations flowed throughout the evening, including with new member of the Fletcher Board of Overseers, Nihal Goonewardene (F73). As attendee Greg Scarlatoiu (F02) noted, “[The event was] a great opportunity to catch up with the DC gang.

I love what I do. I want future generations to do what they love, too. Even before arriving at Fletcher, Irene Meister (F52) knew she wanted a career in international business. From serving as the first female executive in the oil industry focusing on the Middle East, to senior vice president at the American Paper Institute and its successor, American Forest and Paper Association, to her current work as consultant on international trade and business strategy for a Fortune 500 corporation, Dr. Meister continues to fulfill her dreams. She has also had multiple opportunities for public service as a congressional staff member, chair of the lead committee of President Reagan’s Export Council, and chair of an advisory committee for several multinational trade negotiations. She currently serves on the Dean’s Advisory Board of Indiana University and as a member of the Executive Committee of the U.S. Council for International Business. Dr. Meister is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, the Americas Society, and the Asia Society. Two activities bring Dr. Meister the greatest joy and allow her to use her Fletcher background to the fullest: her advisory and consultant work for her multidivisional global client; and mentoring students and lecturing at her two alma maters. Her gifts reflect her passions. Dr. Meister has provided for two endowed scholarships at Fletcher: one will benefit U.S. students enrolled in the international business program and the other will support MALD students who intend to enter public service.

“I have used everything that I learned at Fletcher every day. I benefited from the breadth of the curriculum and have chosen to give back by including Fletcher in my estate plans.”

DOtiehr NORaccess REP Oto R Tinformation. For example, students regularly send me relevant articles from their My research also benefits from their engagement and home newspapers that I otherwise would have missed. In turn, I have been able to offer several students the opportunity to conduct field work in Latin America, which has been a formative experience for them. – Katrina Burgess, Associate Professor of International Political Economy

Fletcher’s diverse student body and faculty are united by a deep desire to solve global problems. This dynamic, rooted in a truly interdisciplinary approach, separated Fletcher from the other graduate DO NOR REP O R T programs I considered. I wanted a career focused on the intersection of the environment and international business, and Fletcher’s strengths in both fields made the program a great fit for me. I’m hoping to start or join an entrepreneurial business in the environmental field. – Kenneth Fan, F07

I knew I wanted to return to school to pursue an MBA and an advanced foreign policy degree. Fletcher was my only choice for the foreign policy degree due to the unique flexibility of the curriculum that now allows me to DO NOR REP O R T expose myself to varying disciplines taught by titans in their respective fields. Fletcher has allowed me to craft this education to my requirements and desires while further allowing me to setup a custom dual degree with the MBA institution of my choice. – Jay Dearborn, F07
