Woodrow Wilson Visiting Fellows connect a liberal education with the world beyond the campus by bringing thoughtful and successful practitioners to colleges for a week of classes and informal discussions with students and faculty. Fellows, who include government officials, business leaders, journalists, environmentalists, and medical ethicists, are matched with small colleges chosen for their commitment to the goals of the program. Together they help to equip students to address social, political, and economic issues.
