Hubert H. Humphrey Fellows
For eighteen years LWV Duluth has hosted Fellows from the University of Minnesota Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program at the Institute of Public Affairs and Human Rights Center at the Law School.
Humphrey Fellows study at the Minneapolis campus for an academic year to expand their knowledge at a professional level in their respective fields.
The Fellows come from designated developing nations and emerging democracies such as Pakistan, Philippines, India, Egypt, Columbia, Turkey, Kenya, Nepal, and many others. The ten or twelve Fellows come to Duluth annually to meet with government and non-government representatives, and discuss mutual issues and policies.
Learning about our community and local governance is a major aspect of their visit. A visit to the Mayor's office and key non-profit agencies provides perspective for participants. The city is showcased with a tour of Duluth’s attractions and the visit is punctuated with a luncheon and discussion time provided by LWV Duluth.
