Dana Day (Senior double major in conflict analysis and dispute resolution and psychology) and Harrison Leon (Sophomore double major in conflict analysis and dispute resolution and political science) are the first two Bosserman UNESCO Fellows. Named after the late founder of the center, Dr. Phil Bosserman, the UNESCO Bosserman Fellowship provides students with the opportunity to work in UNESCO Headquarters in Paris on timely programs relating to the prevention of violent extremism and empathy education.
Dr. Mark Brennan, Professor in the Department of Agricultural Economics, Sociology and Education at Penn State University and a UNESCO Chair in Community, Leadership, and Youth Development was a former student of Dr. Bosserman. Mark is the creator of the Fellowship program where a total of 10 students from the US are taking part. Dana and Harrison are the only undergraduates in this cohort.
