Mandela Washington Fellows: 2016 Civic Leadership Institute

In the summer of 2016, the Staley School of Leadership Studies hosted 27 Mandela Washington Fellows for a Civic Leadership Institute. The Mandela Fellowship is part of the Young African Leaders Initiative, established by the Obama Administration to help develop the next generation of leaders in Africa. Each Mandela Washington Fellow is a leader in their home community, recognized for their positive contributions to innovation and change across the continent of Africa. During their time at K-State, the 2016 Mandela Washington Fellows engaged in a diverse array of leadership development and cultural exchange activities to grow their capacity to make change upon their return home.
