In 2012, Rolland and Mary Nelson, founders of Kemin Industries, provided Drake University with a generous donation to support students interested in pursuing a career in International Affairs.

The Rolland and Mary Nelson Institute for Diplomacy and International Affairs offers students a solid forum which delivers a perfect balance of extensive research and hands-on exercises. Participants learn how to work within a team, build relationships with different political entities and negotiate solutions.

Students gain a better understanding and perspective of steps involved in building bridges and working towards the common good of humanity on a global scale.
