The IIE Scholar Rescue Fund Hite
Lecture Series offers current Scholar Rescue Fund fellows and alumni the opportunity to engage in public lectures, panel
discussions, and course-related seminars on
the experiences of threatened scholars and
on human rights issues around the world.
Made possible by the Hite Foundation Chair
for Communications of the Scholar Rescue
Fund, the Hite Lecture Series promotes academic freedom, political liberties, and IIE’s
commitment to these issues to university
and community audiences.
In addition, the Scholar Rescue Fund Hite
Award Lectures allow scholars to connect
with academics and students outside of
their host universities. Recent Hite Lectures
have included a sociologist from Côte
d’Ivoire speaking at Clark Atlanta University
about human rights issues in his home
country; a public health specialist from
Myanmar presenting at Tufts University and
the Institute of International Education in
New York on the current health care needs
in Myanmar; and a Zimbabwean political
scientist discussing human rights and the
Scholar Rescue Fund program at the University of Limpopo in South Africa.
The Scholar Rescue Fund Hite Award
Lectures allow scholars to connect
with academicians and students
outside of their host universities.
