Davenport University hosts Woodrow Wilson Visiting Fellow
October 17 - 21, 2016
The Woodrow Wilson Visiting Fellows (WWVF) program, operating for more than 40 years, brings prominent artists, diplomats, journalists, business leaders and other nonacademic professionals to campuses across the U.S. for substantive dialog with students and faculty members. This represents the first WWVF visit for Davenport University, presenting a tremendous opportunity for students and faculty as the school celebrates its 150th Anniversary. The WWVF visit was made possible by grant funding made by the M.E. Davenport Foundation.
“This is a tremendous honor for Davenport University,” stated Dr. Pamela Imperato, Dean for the Donald W. Maine College of Business at Davenport. “Mr. Singh-Molares will share his unique perspectives on global business issues and entrepreneurship with our students, faculty and guests. We are excited for the opportunity this represents for our students and look forward to a dialog that will further enhance their studies.”
Throughout the week, students will have opportunities to engage with Singh-Molares on topics of entrepreneurship, ethics and compassionate globalization within their classrooms and at events on the W. A. Lettinga, Lansing and Holland campuses. In addition, he will present at three events held on the Davenport’s W.A. Lettinga Campus for all students, faculty and staff, alumni and members of the larger community.
