Shareen Hertel: Inaugural H.J Heinz Fellow

Monday, March 2, 2020 - 5:00pm
The new Visiting Fellows program is made possible through the generosity of a gift from the H.J. Heniz Company Foundation. The program's purpose is to increase the impact of visits by external scholars and practitioners by bringing them to campus for extended stays to allow for greater interaction with faculty, students, and staff. Dr. Hertel's visit is sponsored by the Global Studies Center, the Center for Sustainable Business in the Katz Graduate School of Business, and the Office of the Provost.
