  • History | Keegan Traveling Fellowship | Vanderbilt University
    Harvard Business School and John H Finley Eliot Professor of Greek Literature at Harvard College They believed that most of the existing fellowships favored students interested primarily in post graduate academic pursuits No fellowship in their view fully challenged a candidate s ability to propose and undertake a post graduate learning experience largely of the student s making Such a learning experience would be a valuable complement to the relatively formalized character of the undergraduate program The Corning Fellowship program expanded in several stages to include students from Yale Vanderbilt Kentucky and North Carolina in addition to Harvard Competition was keen among the applicants from all five of these universities The Corning fellows spent a year traveling around the world No two programs were alike As a group the fellows compiled a remarkable record of accomplishment in politics law business and other fields Corning Glass saw its role as innovator and creator yet not as the source of on going support Funding ceased in 1968 Nearly ten years later the former fellows established the Corning Fellows Association Inc and Michael Ainslie a Vanderbilt alumnus was elected president of the group The goal of the Association was to challenge the universities that had previously participated in the Corning program to establish programs of their own They took this action because they felt that the traveling fellowship had been one of the most important experiences in their lives The World Trade Council of Middle Tennessee and alumni contributions have allowed the University to award this fellowship only on an intermittent basis from 1998 through 2004 In 2003 Michael B Keegan the 1980 Traveling Fellow offered to fund the 2004 award and to secure an endowment that would guarantee this program on an annual basis In recognition of this commitment to the program

    schools Through his fellowship project Turning Mirrors into Windows Understanding International Models of Collaboration in Education from Teachers School Leaders and Community Leaders Selvaggio will be traveling to fifteen countries on five continents to examine how these various countries implement their educational systems and how even in struggling educational systems these countries have innovative approaches to collaborative community engaged educational practices Through a partnership with the Hubert H Humphrey Fellowship Program here at Vanderbilt a U S Department of State program in which educational professionals from designated countries come to Vanderbilt for leadership development and professional collaboration Selvaggio has established contacts with current and past Fellows that he will work with as jumping off points and resources for his exploration into this theme in these countries Through a series of observational protocols surveys and internal reflection tools Selvaggio will meet with various members of the community to better understand the strengths and needs of their educational systems and how each community is using innovation and collaboration to go against educational disparities in their own unique ways Ever since I returned back from my experiences in South Africa and reflected upon my time working in the middle of a partnership between a nonprofit and many stakeholders at a high school in Cape Town I realized that even in areas of the most pronounced educational disparities systems that work together to bring systemic change and various stakeholders to the table are truly the partnerships that will change the world I am so thankful to Mr Keegan the Keegan Fellow Alums and members of the selection committee for allowing me the humbling opportunity to travel around the world and see how communities are changing lives every day through their unique social constructs and innovative approaches to educational growth I am also so grateful

  • Caroline Walker 2015-2016 | Keegan Traveling Fellowship | Vanderbilt University
    different countries to immerse herself in hospital hospice non profit and other culturally specific end of life care organizations to answer her guiding questions how do various cultures around the globe view death as well as a person s dignity at the end of life and what are the features that make them different Walker stated Though issues around the end of life must be confronted by every single person if not for a family member or patient then for themselves it is an often avoided topic Of course this makes perfect sense initially as it is a topic that cuts to the core of who we are as human beings and why we are on this earth for a finite amount of time It forces one to deal with uncomfortable subjects around inconvenience suffering loneliness and loss Furthermore in a western society which values independence choice and control so highly it forces one to question whether or not these aspects are what give us worth or if one s value is something innate It is my goal that a study of many different cultures may initiate an exchange of ideas which result in creative solutions to the approach to end of life care across the world in dealing with these difficult questions and in caring in a dignified manner for those in the last precious stages of life It is unbelievably humbling to have the opportunity provided by the Keegan Fellowship to study these issues which I am so passionate about as well as a great privilege to have the opportunity to share in the precious moment s of a person s last weeks or days I hope that I might grow through this experience in understanding and compassion both for the dying and for all people during this
