Today we’re hosting a PhD Visit Day.  Like all of our Visit Days (and there is one for MIB applicants coming up next week), the day is light on programming, but still draws together all the activities an applicant might want before applying to Fletcher.  In the case of the PhD Visit Day, this means that at 12:30, I’ll be eating lunch with our visitors and offering information about the program.

Are you interested in the PhD program but not here with us today?  It’s still easy to put together a day of relevant activities.  PhD applicants need to contact us directly to set up an interview, but you can arrange one for a day when there is an Information Session scheduled.  If you have questions about the program even after the session, any member of the Admissions staff can help you.

Unlike real journalists, I like featuring good news stories.  So, when I sent a note of congratulations to PhD candidate Ivan for receiving the university’s Presidential Award for Citizenship and Public Service, and Ivan responded to my question about the work for which he was honored, my brain lit up:  BLOG POST!

Here’s what Ivan told me:

I was very honored to receive the award.  I believe it was for general work/public service to the university, but also related to my other service work.  The main components included:  being the Resident Director at Blakeley, helping with continuing education through Osher Lifelong Learning, student initiatives such as serving on the PhD Committee and organizing the PhD conferences and colloquium, and, outside of Tufts/Fletcher, the international civic engagement program I helped lead in China (sponsored by Duke University and the Gates Foundation).

That’s a lot to fit in around Fletcher study and the writing of a dissertation!  Congratulations to Ivan on making such a strong contribution to the community!
