Center Managing Director Elisabeth Rhyne is the featured speaker in the 2008-09 Weissberg Residency of Beloit College’s Weissberg Program in International Studies.
The Weissberg Professorship in International Studies, established in 1999, provides an on-campus residency each year for a distinguished individual who has made an important contribution to international understanding. It is designed to enrich the global perspective and international education programs at Beloit and allows for an extended period of exchange and interaction with respected active “players” on the international stage as they examine some of the key issues of our time.
This year is also the 10th anniversary of the Weissberg Program in International Studies. Events include a weeklong program from March 23-28 featuring practitioners implementing microfinance programs around the world as a means for empowering the poor to improve the economic and social health of their families and communities.
