Students of all majors are invited to learn more about international affairs internships in New York City during a presentation on the SUNY Global Engagement Program. The event will be held Monday, Feb. 24 from 6:30-7:30 p.m. in the Honors Center.
The SUNY Global Engagement Program in New York City provides students with the opportunity to spend a semester immersed in international affairs in the world’s most important global city. Enrolled students intern with one of many international organizations, and an integrated class and research program provides a full semester’s worth of credits and a truly unique educational experience.
“Our goal at the GEP is to have students work in an environment where they will be truly challenged, but also one for which they have the talent and ability to contribute to the real needs of the organization for which they are working,” said SUNY Global Engagement Program Director Ş. İlgü Özler. “The organizations involved in the inaugural year of the Global Engagement Program provided a high quality experience for the students, and in turn, the GEP interns made meaningful contributions to the important work of these organizations.”
Past SUNY Global Engagement Program participants will be answering students’ questions about their internships and experiences in New York City. “Several students describe their experience in the Global Engagement Program as personally, professionally and intellectually transformative. I look forward to a new cohort of GEP participants, and I invite all interested students to with an interest in global affairs to apply for next fall’s program,” said Özler.
Free pizza will be provided.
