Town Hall to Focus on Foreign Study Program Opportunities

Associate Professor of Government Dirk Vandewalle will be hosted by EVP Rick Mills.

The opportunities and benefits of the Frank J. Guarini Institute for International Education’s foreign study programs will be discussed at the next town hall meeting, set for March 27. The noontime session will be hosted by Executive Vice President Rick Mills.

Mills will speak with Associate Professor of Government Dirk Vandewalle, a specialist on politics of the Middle East and North Africa who led the Middle Eastern Studies FSP in Fez, Morocco, in the spring of 2018.

Mills also plans to invite F. Jon Kull ’88, dean of the Guarini School of Graduate and Advanced Studies, to give an update on Dartmouth’s reaccreditation process. Mills will recap Tuesday’s “industry day,” when representatives from companies interested in partnering with the College to design, finance, build, operate, and maintain the Dartmouth Green Energy Project visited campus to learn more about the project.

The hour-long town hall meeting is part of Mills’ ongoing series of community discussions. The session is open to all members of the Dartmouth community. It will be held in Spaulding Auditorium at the Hopkins Center for the Arts.
