The Wintersession Program for 2012 featured James Wolfensohn, president of the World Bank from 1995-2005, as a Distinguished Visiting Scholar.
During Wintersession, the Albright Fellows attended classes with prominent speakers, including Wellesley faculty, alumnae practitioners, and thought leaders from outside organizations. The Fellows work together in interdisciplinary groups on a variety of pressing international issues, which culminate in presentations to the Institute’s Distinguished Visiting Professors at the end of the Institute.
James Wolfensohn and Madeleine Albright '59, with Wellesley President H. Kim Bottomly and Suzanne Nossel, executive director of Amnesty International, closed the program with a discussion: "International Organizations and the Challenges of Change."
