Annoucements from the International Center

This is our first International Center Abroad announcement of the new academic year--filled with opportunities to work, intern, volunteer or study abroad, and ways to build experience towards an international career.

Monday evening, find out about Peace Corps. Wednesday, there's the first event in the International Career Pathways series--many of the sessions in this series are relevant to graduate students, covering topics such as funding for international internships and research, and discipline-specific sessions.
