David Black, a Hopkins Governmental Studies graduate student, has been selected by The American Council of Young Political Leaders (ACYPL) as a delegate to China for a 15-day political exchange program beginning on December 3, 2010.

He will join nine other young political and policy leaders from across the United States to study China’s political system, engage in dialogue on international issues, and forge professional relationships and friendships.  The program is arranged by ACYPL and made possible by a grant from the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs at the US Department of State.  

Recognized by Congress as a pre-eminent catalyst for introducing rising political leaders and policy makers to international affairs and to each other, ACYPL is a bi-partisan, not-for-profit international exchange organization based in Washington, DC. Since its founding in 1966, ACYPL has, with generous support from the US Department of State, corporations, foundations and individuals, conducted programs and exchanges with 100 countries, producing a global network of over 7,500 alumni. Former ACYPL participants include over 40 sitting members of the US Congress, 6 sitting US governors and ambassadors, cabinet ministers and parliamentarians around the globe. 

Congratulations, David!
