Three students in the Leon Charney Diplomacy Program at Florida Atlantic University were recently named Sackler Fellows by the Foreign Policy Association (FPA). Alexa Menashe, Jessica Malinowska and Maria Hasbun attended the FPA’s World Leadership Forum in New York City to receive the honor.

The Sackler Fellows program was established this year to promote great geographical representation of the FPA membership and to encourage young people to join the FPA and participate in events.

“The designation of Alexa, Maria and Jessica as Foreign Policy Association Sackler Fellows is a tremendous accomplishment for these great students, said Jeffery Morton, Ph.D., professor of political science in FAU’s Dorothy F. Schmidt College of Arts and Letters.  “FAU’s Leon Charney Diplomacy Program is honored to be associated with an organization of the stature of the FPA.”

The FPA was established in 1918 to promote non-partisan education of world affairs and U.S. foreign policy. Its Great Decisions program is used nationally to engage citizens in discussions of pressing international challenges. The World Leadership Forum is an annual event that brings together leading experts from business, government, academia and diplomacy. The Forum’s theme this year was U.S. relations with China.

The Leon Charney Diplomacy Program, which trains students in world affairs, dispute resolution and debate, was established in 1996 and is a unit of the Peace, Justice & Human Rights Program at FAU.
