The Weissberg Professorship in International Studies, established in 1999, provides an on-campus residency each year for a distinguished individual who has made an important contribution to international understanding. It is designed to enrich the global perspective and international education programs at Beloit and allows for an extended period of exchange and interaction with respected active "players" on the international stage as they examine some of the key issues of our time. The Weissberg Professorship is underwritten and supported by Marvin Weissberg, a business leader and Beloit College parent, pictured here with the first Chair holder Hanan Ashrawi.

Each year a distinguished individual who has made important contributions to understanding and defending human rights and social justice on the international stage is invited to campus for a week-long residency. Weissberg Chairs contribute new perspectives by contributing to classroom discussions across the disciplines and making public presentations.
