The Weiser Diplomacy Center was established at the Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy in January 2019 with a $10 million gift from University of Michigan alumni Ron and Eileen Weiser. We aim to serve as a leading hub for practical student training in foreign affairs and as a bridge for engagement with the foreign policy community.
The Weiser Diplomacy Center, brings leading diplomats and foreign policy experts to campus and offers practical training sessions and simulations. It sponsors a program for Weiser Diplomacy Fellows and supports student internships and other student-led initiatives pertaining to foreign affairs. The Center also convenes dialogues connecting experts at the Ford School and University of Michigan with the foreign policy community.
The Center is now undertaking a search for Professors of Practice in International Diplomacy, who will add to our rich array of instructional offerings inside and outside of the classroom. The Center also has shorter-term opportunities for diplomats in residence from around the world. If you are interested in getting involved with the Weiser Diplomacy Center or learning more about our offerings, please do not hesitate to contact us.
