Elke Weber will be the next director of the Princeton Fung Global Fellows Program, an international effort based at the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies. She will serve a two-year term, effective July 1, 2022.

The Fung Global Fellows Program brings together international research scholars around a common topic. Under Weber’s directorship, the theme will be “sustainable futures.” As director, Weber will be responsible for helping to select the 2022-23 cohort of scholars. She will also help to organize a celebration of the program’s 10th anniversary in spring 2023.

“The Fung Global Forum has been making an important and sorely needed contribution to Princeton, the nation, and the world at large by bringing culturally diverse voices and talents to bear on the analysis of critical social issues. I am honored to lead this initiative in its focus on ‘sustainable futures’ for the next two years,” Weber said.
