The Empire State of Mind Albany Happy Hour

Come and reconnect with your fellow alums and enjoy complimentary hors d’oeuvres and happy hour drink prices until 7 pm. You’ll also have the opportunity to meet the Maxwell Humphrey Fellows who will be visiting Albany.
The Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program was initiated in 1978 to honor the late Senator and Vice President Hubert H. Humphrey and his life-long commitment to international cooperation and public service. The program brings accomplished mid-career professionals from designated developing nations and emerging democracies to the United States for a year of professional development and related academic study and cultural exchange. The people-to-people approach to international understanding provides a basis for lasting ties between U.S. citizens and their professional counterparts in other countries. It also strengthens the global exchange of knowledge and experience essential to a sustainable world. Fellowships are granted competitively to professional candidates with a commitment to public service. The program is sponsored by the United States Department of State and is administered by the Institute of International Education. This year’s program includes 220 Fellows from 94 countries, hosted by 18 universities throughout the United States. Humphrey Fellows come to the Maxwell School to pursue studies and professional development work in the areas of public policy, public administration, non-profit management, leadership and collaboration.
