Former Fugees member, international recording artist and Haitian activist Wyclef Jean accepted an appointment yesterday to be a visiting fellow in the Department of Africana Studies.

Jean, who has been an advocate for victims of this year's earthquake in Haiti, will be joining the University this academic year to engage in Brown's Haitian Initiative, according to a University press release. As a visiting fellow, Jean will be participating in events and discussions both on campus and remotely.

"His presence allows us to really think through some of the issues related to Haiti and expand what we are already doing," said Tricia Rose MA'87 PhD'93, professor of Africana studies and chair of the department.
Rose added that the appointment expands the department's effort to embrace ideas and hear from people with a broad range of experiences.

"The visiting fellows program is designed to create more dynamic opportunities for dialogue and community building around issues," Rose said.
