"UC Davis will host its third institute for the Mandela Washington Fellowship, the flagship of the U.S. government’s Young African Leaders Initiative.

The U.S. State Department and IREX, the international nonprofit organization that administers the fellowship program, announced 27 colleges and universities as institute hosts for 2018, saying they will welcome a total of about 700 fellows from sub-Saharan Africa for six-week summer programs in business and entrepreneurship, civic leadership, and public management.

In 2016, UC Davis pioneered the fellowship’s first energy-themed institute and held the second one last year. This year UC Davis will host about two dozen fellows for “Managing Globalization: Public Policy and Development in the 21st Century.”

Organized by Global Affairs, the institute will address the public management process; the evaluation of public regulations, policies and programs; and the planning and financing of public services and infrastructure. It will be held June 20 through July 29."
