George Mason welcomes members of the Washington, D.C., diplomatic community at the Fairfax Campus today for the university’s fourth celebration of Salute to the Ambassadors. The event, sponsored by the Center for Global Education on behalf of the Office of the President, is an opportunity for ambassadors to learn about the resources of the university and meet with the faculty and the international students. It is an outreach effort intended to strengthen ties between Mason and the diplomatic community. Forty embassies will be represented.

The day begins with a luncheon in the Johnson Center hosted by President Alan Merten and Sally Merten for the diplomats, Board of Visitors, deans and directors, and faculty and staff involved with global issues. International students, especially those from the diplomats’ home countries, are also invited guests at the luncheon. The keynote address is given by Roger Stough, School of Public Policy, on “Washington as a Global Gateway.”
