Kosovo's President visits Dartmouth
CONCORD, N.H.—Kosovo's president is giving a public lecture at New Hampshire's Dartmouth College on the challenges of building a new state in the wake of its 1999 war for independence.
President Atifete Jahjaga (Ah-TIH'-fe-te Ya-YA'-ga) was elected in April 2011 as the fledgling country's fourth elected president. She is visiting Dartmouth for two days before taking part in the Women in the World Summit in New York City.
Dartmouth began its relationship with Kosovo following the war when Dartmouth Medical School faculty and Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center physicians treated refugees. The relationship resulted in later exchanges. The college is currently working with American University in Kosovo to prepare it for U.S. accreditation.
The lecture is at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Hopkins Center and is open to the public.
