At SIS, the Diplomatic Fellows Association (DFA) creates a global network of past and present fellows dedicated to promoting peace, understanding, and effective communication in the representation of the US. These SIS students and alumni come from diverse and underrepresented backgrounds and share the experience of completing their graduate education at SIS and an interest in supporting future fellows. The fellows come from the Thomas R. Pickering, Charles B. Rangel, and Donald M. Payne Fellowship Programs and go on to foreign service careers in the US Department of State and USAID. Prospective students interested in pursuing these fellowship programs may contact any of the current SIS Fellows through their profiles.

In my courses, we are never looking at a question or challenge in just one way.
