Thanksgiving wishes from an IWP alumna

November 21, 2012  |  STUDENTS & ALUMNI

Dear Friends of IWP:

Thank you for your generous contributions and your dedication to supporting the critical mission of The Institute of World Politics.

Three years ago I chose IWP and embarked upon a journey that shaped who I am both as a person and as a professional.  The Institute is a community of scholar-practitioners bound together by an appreciation of the elements of statecraft and an unwavering commitment to the ideals of our Founding Fathers.  The Institute fosters a set of shared core values among all students, faculty, and staff: a passion for learning, a desire to serve, and a love of country. 

This Thanksgiving, I wanted to extend my sincere gratitude for your continued support.  It is your generosity that provided scholarships to me and so many of my peers, allowing us to pursue an education founded in civic virtue and become lifelong partners in our shared vision for the future of American foreign policy.

On behalf of our students and alumni, I wish you and your family a blessed Thanksgiving holiday.

Sincerely yours,

Kristen Beilman
Special Assistant, Office of External Affairs
