In his monthly video report as Dean of The Fletcher School at Tufts University, Admiral James Stavridis sits down with Assistant Professor of Development Economics Jenny Aker to discuss her latest field work in Africa and opportunities for her students to gain real world experience in developing regions while pursuing their Fletcher degree.

Dean Stavridis also extends a warm welcome to the 375 students returning from the annual Fletcher ski trip to Maine and an equally warm invitation to Fletcher students and alumni to attend the school's annual DC Career Trip and Student-Alumni Networking Event on February 20, 2014.
