Tucked into one of Fletcher’s lecture rooms for the next two weeks are mid-career students in the Global Master of Arts Program (GMAP) class of 2013-2014. They were welcomed back to campus with a dinner last night, and they’ll be in residence for two weeks, capping off a year of internet-mediated learning, punctuated by two prior residencies — here at Fletcher last summer, and in Abu Dhabi in January. This class will graduate on Saturday, July 19. A fresh group of students in the Class of 2014-2015 will arrive shortly thereafter.
The GMAP class is big enough to make a little noise when they’re on break, but the daily schedule is intense and we won’t see them often. It’s still nice to know that there are students in the building.
