2014-15 IPDGC Annual Report Released

June 12, 2015

Every year, the Institute for Public Diplomacy and Global Communication releases an annual report, summarizing the activities and achievements from the previous school year. The 2014-15 report has just been released, and is available as .pdf download here. See the overview below for a summary of the year! 

"This year, IPDGC continued many of its ongoing programs and events, in addition to building new partnerships with external organizations and expanding existing programs.

Among the long-time partnerships, IPDGC continued its joint research projects with the U.S. Institute of Peace on the Blogs & Bullets report series. The Public Diplomacy Fellow’s Program expanded outreach to GW students interested in joining the U.S. Foreign Service and public diplomacy in practice. IPDGC also launched a new partnership with the Public Diplomacy Council of Catalonia to explore PD efforts of sub-states and foreign policy ambitions.

IPDGC also suffered some losses. On June 29, 2014, Walter Roberts passed away. As founder of IPDGC and a pioneer of modern U.S. public diplomacy, IPDGC is indebted to Dr. Roberts and his contribution to the field of public diplomacy as a profession and academic discipline. The Institute continues to be supported by the endowment in his name, the Walter Roberts Endowment, and honored by his memory."
