The stone wall foundation of the Josef Korbel School of International Studies at the University of Denver features three polar bears.

The new home for the University of Denver’s Josef Korbel School of International Studies pays meaningful tribute to three Bowdoin alumni who, quite literally are all part of the institutes foundation.

If you look closely at the new building’s stone wall foundation, three polar bears stand in relief to represent Korbel School Dean Christopher Hill ’74, H’14, the former US Ambassador to Iraq, Korea, Poland and Macedonia, and the 25th Assistant Secretary of State for East Asian and Pacific Affairs; architect David Houston ’84, with Anderson Mason Dale, the firm behind the new building; and Mark Rodgers ’88, university architect at the University of  Denver.
