Alumni Spotlight: First Joan Durcan Scholar Graduates IDHA

946a1da1-2eca-49e1-837a-077efa5d2fcf

The first Joan Durcan Scholar,Vincent Kenny, Ph.D., graduated from the 44th International Diploma in Humanitarian Assistance (IDHA) held in Geneva, Switzerland this past February.

Enriched by a long career in development work and nonprofit organization management, Vincent has participated, managed, and taught on hundreds of graduate and postgraduate  courses at the Certificate, Diploma, Masters and Doctorate levels. Yet, the IDHA proved to be different experience for Vincent, allowing him to share his extensive knowledge while also learning from and alongside his classmates. The Joan Durcan Scholarship facilitated this endeavor, and allowed Vincent to take advantage of the “extraordinary range of talents and experience available to the participants throughout the intensive program,” as he explains in a beautifully written article about his time as a participant.

Reflecting on his memories of IDHA 44, Vincent writes:
“The whole experience was empowering and inspirational. I thought I had seen every type of program, however the unique learning framework of the IDHA is truly remarkable and worthwhile. It is a great legacy to humankind.”
