We are extremely proud to announce that Senior Head of Mosaic and Community Integration, Nizam Uddin has been named a 2019 Maurice R. Greenberg World Fellow at Yale University.
The World Fellows program is Yale University’s signature global leadership development initiative and a core element of Yale’s ongoing commitment to internationalization. Each year, the University invites a group of exemplary practitioners from a wide range of fields and countries for an intensive four-month period of academic enrichment and leadership training.
President of Yale, Peter Salovey said:
I am delighted to welcome the 2019 World Fellows to the university. It is wonderful that the programme has been bringing remarkable leaders and trailblazers to Yale for 18 years. During their time on campus, they teach, conduct research and participate in public service.
They remain engaged with Yale faculty, staff and students long after the fellowship ends. These distinguished fellows become ambassadors for Yale and continue to share our mission to improve the world today and for future generations.Peter Salovey – President, Yale University
The mission of World Fellows is to cultivate and empower a network of globally engaged leaders committed to making the world a better place.
Responding to the news, Nizam said:
It’s a great honour to be recognised in this way and I am excited to make the most of my time at Yale with the World Fellows. At the heart of Mosaic’s work is to share with young people a new sense of what they are capable of, and to do that by connecting them to aspirational and relatable role models. I am thrilled to be in a position where I can share my own story of how a young boy from Tower Hamlets now finds himself in one of the best universities in the world, and how ambition is a possibility for so many more talented young people across the country.
Among the many themes I hope to explore during my time at Yale will be social integration, racial equity, international social mobility and the advancement of minorities in society. I look forward to working with the Fellows to make the world that much smaller for us all.Nizam Uddin – Senior Head of Mosaic and Community Integration, The Prince’s Trust
