New Haven Connecticut - Summer Institute for Islam, Intercultural Relations, & Leadership

On behalf of Pathways for Mutual Respect, I’d like to invite University of Michigan students from the Center for Middle Eastern and North African Studies to apply to our Summer Institute on Islam, Intercultural Relations, and Leadership, an intensive three-week program that will take place in New Haven, Connecticut, from June 28-July 17, 2009. Participants will engage in four core elements during the Institute:

o Scholarship – academically rigorous, multidisciplinary mini-courses geared toward developing a deeper and more nuanced understanding of the modern Islamic world
o Experience – from in-depth relationship building with international families to guided mosque visits, students will participate in multiple cross cultural interactions on a daily basis, interspersed by facilitated debriefings
o Collaboration – students will work with classmates and the Institute’s core faculty on projects and presentations designed to help internalize what they are learning in classes and experience
o Impact – prior to leaving the Institute, students will have, under the guidance of Pathways staff and core faculty, written an action plan which they are committed to implementing upon their return home

We are seeking applicants in the professional or academic fields of International Relations, Near East/Middle Eastern Languages, Linguistics, Middle East Studies, Cross-cultural Communications, Political Science, Conflict Resolution, Religious Studies, and International Business, as well as educators and community leaders. The cost, including housing, most meals, and local transportation, is $2500. We have a limited amount of need-based scholarships available, for which we encourage potential participants to apply.

Admitted applicants will receive a $75 tuition discount if they submit their applications by the early application deadline of March 31. The deadline for applications is April 15, 2009.

For more information and links to the application forms, interested students may visit our website at www.pfmr.org. Questions may be directed to summer.institute@pfmr.org.
