Woodrow Wilson Visiting Fellow
York College of Pennsylvania is proud to host an annual Woodrow Wilson Visiting Fellow sponsored by the Council of Independent Colleges (CIC). This sponsorship provides support for a brief residential program where outside scholars teach classes, run seminars, offer workshops, and provide public lectures. The purpose of the program is to create a better understanding of and new connections between the academic and nonacademic worlds.
At a time when there is increased focus on preparing students for practical jobs in the “real” world, CIC’s Woodrow Wilson Visiting Fellows (WWVF) program provides meaningful learning opportunities outside the traditional classroom. In addition, the program exposes students and community members to outstanding individuals in professional fields. Finally, the visiting fellow gives young scholars the chance to consider the sometimes irregular paths Fellows took in conducting their research.
