Dr. Maxim Mokeev from the Stolypin Volga Region Institution of Administration in Saratov, Russia, will teach a special political science class at the Loudoun Campus of Northern Virginia Community College this fall.
Mokeev, an expert in Russian public sector policy, is coming to NOVA-Loudoun as a Fulbright Scholar-in-Residence. His class will focus on institutional and functional dimensions of public administration in Russia as well as on the urgent issues of Russian economic, social, foreign and human resource policies. Public administration reform, local government reform, implementation of good governance and fighting corruption will also be covered.
While at NOVA, Mokeev will pursue scholarly research and participate in college and community events related to U.S.-Russian relations, international trade and local government.
The Fulbright Scholar Program encourages international exchanges in the academic community. Mokeev’s visit is a result of Miguel Corrigan’s experience as a Fulbright Scholar at Stolypin last spring. Corrigan is head of the Business Program at NOVA-Loudoun.
“Russian Government and Policy” (PLS 295-003L) will meet on Wednesdays from 7 to 9:40 p.m. starting Aug. 26 and students must register no later than 11:59 p.m. Aug. 23. To learn more, contact Corrigan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
