  • Tony Blinken, former U.S. Deputy Secretary of State and former Deputy National Security Advisor for President Obama
  • Alfredo Corchado, award-winning journalist, author, and co-director of the Borderlands Program at The Walter Cronkite School of Journalism at Arizona State University
  • Bob Dold, former two-term U.S. Representative for the 10th District of Illinois
  • Jennifer Granholm, former two-term Governor of Michigan

“From a former governor to a former member of Congress; from a recent top presidential adviser to one of America’s leading diplomats; from an Afghani judge and women’s rights champion to journalists expert on the American labor movement and drug wars, the IOP is thrilled to host a truly diverse and distinguished group of Fellows,” IOP director David Axelrod said. “We look forward to learning from them.”

While on campus next quarter, the seven Fellows will interact with students and faculty, participate in public forums and, along with guests, lead off-the-record seminars.
