Careers in Diplomacy and working at the Department of State is being discussed today at Western Connecticut State University. The presenter is an adjunct professor who spent nearly 30 years serving in often volatile areas of the Middle East. William Stewart retired from the U-S Department of State in 2013 as a career member of the Senior Foreign Service. He started his career, and ended it, with a post in Sweden before moving to Redding.
Stewart will talk about internships and job opportunities at the State Department. He is now teaching an undergraduate course at Western on world governments, economies and cultures. Stewart hopes those students interested in political science or those who want to be engaged citizens will attend.
The discussion will be held in Warner Hall Lyceum 102 on the university’s Midtown campus, 181 White St. in Danbury at noon on Wednesday. It is free and open to the public.
