For more than 35 years, the Woodrow Wilson Visiting Fellows program has brought prominent artists, diplomats, journalists, business leaders, and other nonacademic professionals to campuses across the United States for weeklong residencies of teaching and dialogue with students and faculty members.

Through an intensive program of classes, seminars, workshops, lectures and informal discussions, the fellows create better understanding and new connections between the academic and non-academic worlds.
