Farewell Fellows: Embracing Differences and Moving Forward Together

Status message

Please note that this event has already occurred.
Featuring IOP Fellows Eugenia Gibbons and Jane Swift

Join the Frederick E. Berry Institute of Politics at 11 am on Thursday, April 27 as we say farewell to our spring 2023 Berry IOP Fellows. This semester, we were honored to welcome Jane Swift, former Republican Governor of Massachusetts, and Eugenia Gibbons, an expert in climate policy and programming. This event will include a moderated conversation between our IOP Fellows followed by a reception. The conversation will focus on political issues both fellows care about, but don’t necessarily agree on and how embracing those differences is integral to creating change and moving forward together. This is a final opportunity for you to meet our IOP Fellows, thank them for their time with us this semester, and listen to them engage in a lively discussion. Refreshments will be provided. This event will be in-person in the Martin Luther King, Jr. Room on the second floor of the Ellison Campus Center.

RSVP to this event.


About the Berry IOP Fellowship

Each spring semester, the Berry IOP invites two prominent elected officials, journalists, activists, lawyers, policymakers, and other public servants to campus to serve as Berry IOP Fellows. As rising or seasoned professionals, Fellows share their knowledge, skills, and experiences with students who are exploring and pursuing careers in politics and public service. Through one-time and ongoing engagement, Fellows serve as a resource and a mentor to students. During their visits, IOP Fellows participated in and led both curricular and co-curricular programs including visiting classes, hosting meals with students, and coordinating speaker and workshop events.
