Annual Report

We had a productive 2021-2022 as we launched and expanded the Mroz Institute’s programming. We continue building the legacy society, complemented by the archive and oral history project. We have had amazing speakers for the World Affairs Colloquium Series both on-campus and via Zoom.

During the spring break, we took students to Washington, D.C., and visited the National Endowment for Democracy, the Belgium Embassyto the U.S., the office of Der Spiegel, the Observer Research Foundation of America, the Stimson Center and the U.S. State Department.

We recruited a cohort of International Scholars and Global Ambassadors for the next academic year. The first Mroz Institute Visiting Fellow, Damon Wilson, was active on campus throughout the spring semester. He gave several talks, met with students and faculty, and participated in the Inaugural Convening. In fall 2022, Caroline Croft will spend two weeks on campus as our next Mroz Institute Visiting Fellow. Check out our list of upcoming events in Fall 2022

This 2021-2022 Annual Report gives an overview of the Mroz Institute’s programs and engagements during the 2021-2022 academic year. We have been fortunate to benefit from generous gifts from the EWI and the Bennett Family. We are thankful for all the support from President Hsu’s office, the administration, faculty members and the School of Languages, Cultures, and World Affairs. Through the Mroz Institute, the EWI spirit continues inspiring future generations to make a better world.
