Mitchell, who during his more than 30 years experience in politics was a key architect in the Good Friday Agreement of 1998 in Northern Ireland and  served as a Special Envoy for Middle East Peace, spoke at the invitation of the GLI, following up on a previous address for program alumni in Dublin in September.

This year's IEW theme is "Beyond Borders: Identities and Perceptions in Today’s World." More than 40 events are taking place across campus, organized under the direction of the Office of International Students and Scholars and the Office of International Programs. (Photo by Lee Pellegrini)
