Summer is one of my favorite periods on the blog calendar, as it means it’s time to check in with some of our recent alumni. I’ve tried to carry on a longstanding tradition started by Jessica of providing periodic updates from alumni who are one and five years removed from Fletcher. It’s always interesting to see what these folks are up to, and more selfishly, it’ s a personal treat to have an excuse to reach out to some of our favorite students from years past. We’ll start today with our good friend John, who longtime readers may remember as a Graduate Assistant in our office during his student days. I recall being in touch with John when he was a prospective student himself, finishing up his Peace Corps service in China. We miss having him in our office, but it’s a delight to learn more about his transition to DC and the exciting work he’s been doing there.

Last week I had the good fortune to drop in on a session welcoming the newest MIB students to Fletcher. Although we’re just moving into mid-July, it’s only a handful of weeks until these folks will formally begin their studies with the mandatory Strategic Management pre-session.

As the world enters month 5 of constant crisis mode, one reassuring bright spot on our end has been witnessing the nimbleness of Fletcher’s scholarly community in analyzing various facets of the pandemic. While it’s admittedly something of a cold comfort, it’s hard not to notice how an interdisciplinary international affairs faculty and research community is ideally positioned to respond to one of the most truly global emergencies of our lifetimes.
